"There is an issue with repeating requirements - -Professional practice standards, codes and guidelines -Code of Ethics for nurses in Australia and the Code of conduct for nurses -Codes of practice -NMBA nursing practice guidelines, standards and fact sheets. Should all of these be just Code of Ethics ICN, Code of Conduct, EN Standards of Practice , Registration Standards? There is no Social Media Policy just Social Media guidelines according to NMA. Insurance requirements including PII should only be PII. In life and death issues - living will isn't a legal term, should only say Advanced Healthcare Directive."
