Christine Crofton is a registered nurse who has been involved in aged care for many years in a variety of roles - including senior management of aged-care facilities. She is currently a nurse educator who believes that older people must be valued, respected, and cared for in accordance with the highest professional standards. If this is to be achieved, Christine believes that documentation must be undertaken effectively and efficiently. If aged-care nurses are empowered and confident in their own abilities, positive resident outcomes and excellence in documentation will be assured.
