2024 Nursing Seminar Series

Peter Mac and University of Melbourne Nursing Seminar Series 2024

Our event series

This year, the Department of Nursing, The University of Melbourne and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre are excited to announce the continuation of our co-hosted public event series. The 2024 Nursing Event Series will continue on from last year’s theme, exploring the concept of equitable health care.

Ensuring equitable access to healthcare is not just a measure of safety and quality; it is fundamental to the performance of our health system. Nurses, positioned at the crossroads of primary, community, and acute health services, play a pivotal role in navigating timely access and advocating for system improvements to meet the diverse needs of all individuals seeking healthcare.

We have called this year’s series

Expanding Scope of Practice in Nursing: Evidence and Experiences from the Field


Our four-part series aims to:

  1. Explore: innovative designs, implementation strategies, and evaluation of nurse-led models of care, addressing equitable access for vulnerable populations.

  2. Consider: approaches to optimising nurses' scope of practice, unlocking better access to healthcare for all.

  3. Foster: new and build on existing networks and collaboration between nurses, researchers, and students passionate about health services research focused on advancing equity in healthcare access.
