On 18 February 2014, the Minister for Health launched and addressed the inaugural meeting to the Queensland Nursing and Midwifery Executive Council (QNMExC).
QNMExC provides high-level advice and recommendations regarding nursing and midwifery services to support delivery of Government health priorities.
Membership of QNMExC includes representation from executive level nursing and midwifery positions from a broad range of clinical service providers, including Queensland public Hospital and Health Services, private and non-government sectors and Universities.
Key strategic priorities for the Council include:
- maintaining full scope of nursing and midwifery across the state and avoiding reductionist processes
- utilisation of data and information for improving health services across Queensland through nursing and midwifery
- building capacity and sustainability in the nursing and midwifery profession.
QNMExC meets every second month, with semi-regular attendance by the Minister for Health, Mental Health and Ambulance Services and Minister for Women, and the Director-General.
