Log of Claims

In developing this log of claims the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation Tasmania Branch (ANMF) consulted extensively with members at all Public Sector Sites. This was done through face to face workplace meetings, large membership meetings, surveys and consultation with members of Branch Council.

Our broad process of consultation revealed that the most widely and deeply felt issues were related to recruitment of new nurses and midwives along with a need to retain the current nursing and midwifery workforce.

You can read the full log of claims online here.
