Nurses provide a variety of medical services to all sections of the community. They work in the prevention of illness, the promotion of health and the care of the diseased, disabled and elderly.
In Australia, nurses are qualified through the university system and must be registered by the Australian Health Practitioners Registration Agency.
At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain an expert submission that suits your needs and budget.
Expertise in Action
Experts in nursing are often asked to provide expert opinion with regard to:
- Nursing laws, standard, policy and procedures
- Wound care
- Interpretation of medical documentation and jargon
- Assessment of accidents such as:
- Emergency triage misdiagnoses
- Choking episodes
- Cannulation mistakes
For some fields of expertise we have some sample sections of de-identified reports. Please contact our office if you are interested in a sample.
The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:
- The need for a view or inspection of a location
- The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
- Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
- Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
What Does Expert Nursing Practice Mean?
Becoming an expert practice nurse should be the goal of all nurses and those planning for such a career. But the meaning of what an expert nurse in clinical practice is, is not as easy to define or evaluate, as it is in nursing education or nursing research.
From expert to tasks, expert nursing practice redefined?
The aim of this paper was to explore the concept of expertise in nursing from the perspective of how it relates to current driving forces in health care in which it discusses the potential barriers to acceptance of nursing expertise in a climate in which quantification of value and cost containment run high on agendas.
