There are so many people in the cosmetic industry flaunting these advertising guidelines, especially on Instagram with before and after photos. It is good to know that we have a resource from AHPRA to guide and maintain our integrity as health professionals.
The other thing that we see is nurses advertising themselves on websites as nurse practitioners when they are not endorsed as one. Again, AHPRA is very clear that this breach in professional conduct is unacceptable.
In our CPD modules and our Advanced laser & intense pulsed light accreditation course we have a significant section devoted to helping you learn about your professional obligations.
A joint statement from the Australian College of Nursing and the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery, 15th May 2018 has been released giving long needed guidance for nurse injectors.
