Wheat­belt nurse of year

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

NURSE man­ager Brett Hayes from York took out the top gong at the WA Nurs­ing and Mid­wifery Awards this month.

The WA Coun­try Health Ser­vice (WACHS) em­ployee who de­vel­oped Telepal­lia­tive Care in the Home in the Wheat­belt in 2016 was named Nurse of the Year.

Mr Hayes, who works only in the Wheat­belt re­gion, has been a nurse for 10 years and started his ca­reer in the city.

He said lis­ten­ing to pa­tients and their fam­i­lies had been fun­da­men­tal to the de­vel­op­ment of tele­health technology and had proved im­por­tant when sup­port­ing pa­tients in the fi­nal stages of their life. 2018 WIN­NERS Life­time Achieve­ment Hon­our: Pro­fes­sor Phill Della (Curtin Uni­ver­sity)
