AIDH – Nursing. Midwifery
Nursing and midwifery informatics has a unique role in ensuring a digitally enabled health system delivers on the promise of better health outcomes for all Australians. Nursing is the largest single profession in the healthcare workforce and provides continuous care to patients during inpatient stays and to consumers within community and primary healthcare settings. The role of nurses and midwives in the digital environment has the potential to not only deliver improvements in efficiency and patient outcomes, but also to facilitate an improved consumer and clinician experience.

About AIDH – Nursing. Midwifery
The Nursing and Midwifery CoP is the pre-eminent group of nursing and midwifery informaticians in Australia. Membership is open to all registered nurses and registered midwives.
The CoP promotes nursing and midwifery informatics priorities such as appropriate language, education and ongoing research. It engenders nursing and midwifery to embrace information and communication technologies, and establishes strong foundations for taking these developments forward.
It also ensures nursing and midwifery has the data and resources to continue to provide evidence-based, quality, cost-effective and outcome-driven care for patients and clients into the future.
