Members Stepping Up. Champions!
Our SAPNA Champions assist the Committee by stepping up to ensure that SAPNA information and event notifications are distributed and displayed in their workplaces.
This means that perioperative nurses across South Australia are kept up to date with events and education opportunities.
Being a SAPNA Champion is a tangible and important way that members can assist and contribute to perioperative nursing education in SA, without the regular commitment associated with serving on the committee.
The Role of the SAPNA Champion
The Role of the SAPNA Champion is to be the conduit between the SAPNA Committee and SAPNA Members in your organisation. This means that when you receive flyers, forms or other information from the SAPNA Committee, you ensure that it is displayed on your workplace noticeboards, in lunch rooms or other appropriate places where perioperative nurses spend some time.
SAPNA Champions are the ‘Go To’ people at the coal-face, and can play their part in benefiting perioperative nursing in SA through recognising the needs of members in regard to perioperative nursing education, encouraging membership and professional development, or bringing any other matter to the attention of the Committee as you feel necessary.
