Case in point 2

Realising their potential: a strategic approach to primary care nursing

Being directly responsible for a team of 18 people across four sites is no mean feat. But that’s not all that experienced registered nurse Kathy Godwin relishes about her role as Strategic Manager for Shoalhaven Family Medical Centres. She also ensures that the nursing team collaborates with the other practice staff, including 16 GPs, in servicing 25,000 patients in the local area.
