Nurses and midwives from across the state came together on May 9 to hear the latest on practice innovation, workforce sustainability and professional capability at the main nursing and midwifery event of the year!

Juiced TV producer Pip Russell joined the event this year, inspiring and motivating attendees with her story and her work in changing the way kids experience hospital.

Due to the significant investment in the Refresh Nursing program, #PAP2018 was particularly targeted towards early career nurses and midwives. The support and endorsement from NUMs, MUMs, Directors and Executive Directors of Nursing and Midwifery in enabling their junior staff to attend was greatly appreciated.

About Pip Russell

Pip Russell

For nine years, Pip fronted two of Network Ten’s national children’s shows Toasted TV and Totally Wild. During this time she had many adventures and gained extensive production skills working on national and international shoots, while using her public profile to champion many charitable organisations.

Pip’s deep passion for supporting meaningful causes has seen her volunteer in remote villages in Africa and with local organisations, raise more than $20,000 for cancer research at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, and present a documentary on Australian Aid in Cambodia.

In 2014, she traded in commercial television to launch Juiced TV and change the way sick kids experience hospital.

Since launching the program, Pip has been an ambassador and guest speaker for many events including Advance Queensland Initiatives, Australian Women's Leadership Summit, Small Business and Women in Business functions.

Having recently been awarded the 2018 Queensland Local Hero, Pip looks forward to celebrating this recognition by achieving the goal of expanding Juiced TV to 10 regional children's wards throughout Queensland this year, as well as to interstate hospitals.
