Nurses will get the chance to make full use of their skills in the coming years, following a Ministry of Health decision to review the rules governing their roles. This includes giving them the authority to perform tasks typically carried out by doctors, as well as expanding their job scopes to cover more complex duties. The planned changes were announced by Senior Minister of State for Health Chee Hong Tat yesterday, in a speech on the importance of education in healthcare. CGH was mentioned in CNA online to have participated in the Stroke inter-professional education training (IPE) programme.
