No matter where you fall on the "vaccine debate" this is troubling.



Nurses and midwives who ignore scientific evidence by promoting anti-vaccination to patients and the public are being cracked down on in a tough new position statement from their industry regulator.

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia released the vaccination standards in response to what it described as a small number of nurses and midwives promoting anti-vaccination via social media.

“The board is taking this opportunity to make its expectations about providing advice on vaccinations clear to registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives,” the statement reads.

“The board expects all registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives to use the best available evidence in making practice decisions.”

The statement also urges members of the public to report nurses or midwives promoting anti-vaccination. Promoting false, misleading or deceptive information is an offence under national law and is prosecutable by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

“The board will consider whether the nurse or midwife has breached their professional obligations and will treat these matters seriously,” the statement said.


I guess keep your opinions to yourself.?

There are many opinions about the vaccines, and nurses are professionals. Should they give their opinion about vaccines, there is scant evidence of the damage done we are told, and the side effects are minor compared to the sickness they solve.

What do you think, is this a dangerous precedence?

Also Australia doesn't enjoy the same freedom of speech right as the US.

There's a reason we hardly see houses with colored quarantine papers in their windows, or massive deaths from MMR or Polio..... and it's because of Vaccinations.

I support vaccinating. It's a herd immunization. We MUST protect the littlest ones who are too young to be vaccinated. We MUST protect the communities that are too sick to vaccinate. We MUST protect the elders who are too old to vaccinate.

That's just how I see it. So yes, I think they are right to crack down on them. And even with free speech, I can't say anything I want at my job and expect to not be fired for it.
You align what comes out of your mouth with your business because you represent them.

Nurses SHOULD be held responsible for BAD advice they give based on an OPINION. Australia has decided it's by being prosecuted.

Medicine isn't about opinions, it's about science.

I got to tell ya, we used to have polio, and it hurt/killed a lot people until the vaccine. From the studies I have seen, we are better off with them than without.

But is there a personal limit we should impose on ourselves? Like cold sore vacs, shingles vacs, flue vacs, should we get'em? Even though the shingles and flue vaccines are for illnesses far less severe than a polio or small pox should we really be gett'em all?

It is the business's buisness to assure that their employees stick to the businesses goals or image they want and punish accordingly.

Sending big brother in to protect business interests at the force of a gun is not the way it should go.

Regardless of your opinion of vaccine safety, they are not all safe, as seen in vaccine court.

That's the way it should be.

Stick to the science. Opinion doesn't count.

Cause you are talking about free speech here.

We're not talking about free speech. It's about nurses offering an opinion on something that they have no place to offer an opinion on.

You can cry "it's about free speech!" if you want, but you would be wrong. Free speech doesn't exist in the workplace.

Some of the vaccines are made with aborted babies I'm pretty sure, at any rate these drug companies are pure evil the vaccines defiantly have mercury and aluminum, so why are we injecting this crap into our babies and you're seen as bad is you don't like these companies and products.

Have you got any evidence of that rediculous claim?

You wouldn't just make that up, would you?

Agreed, and there is a risk in all the thing we do to keep ourselves healthy, lift weights, back injury, swim slip and fall getting in, biking, meet a car...... Vaccines studies conclude that the good far out weight the bad.

I honestly don't find this troubling. Yes, on some level its censorship, but sometimes, in the interests of public health, that's necessary to stop the spread of urban myth conspiracy junk science that has no basis in factual evidence to support the claims.

Honestly, I think we should begin to see more of this type censorship. I've come to realize in this election cycle that so many people believe things based upon facts NOT in evidence. At some point, the spreading of this crack pot unreality has to be curtailed, if for no other reason than the real fact of the huge sums of money wasted as a result of these whack job beliefs.

Who is crying, try re-reading my post.

You are for having police prosecution within a business. That is actually a step down from the Nazi.

But keep cheering on corporate enslavement-literally

Seperate you emotion from the vaccine debate.

What is next taser to the face, you were late for work.

Most definitely.

Have there been cases of tainted vaccines or bad reactions? Of course there has. Just like there has with everything else in life.

Vaccines have helped save so many people that I just don't understand the anti vax crowd.

Hyperbole much?

If the Hospitals policy is for no vaccine talk from nurses, then they should be fired.

End of story.

Go get your Garasil for yourself and children, then let us know.
We are being forced to take that garbage even though it is outlawed in many other countries it is banned such as Japan, Spain, Denmark, etdc.

Do you always move goal posts like this?

The problem is police intervention and prosecution for a corp entity.

Very fn dangerous precedent. Look past your emotions.

Hyberbole? what would get you concerned?

Random electrocutions?

The original source for that is natural news. The same place that says Bicarbonate of soda can kill cancer, then has a top 10 list of medical myths including bicarbonate of soda kills cancer lol.
