The thesis statement is that nursing profession according to Australiangovernance should provide patient centered care involving families and developing a properpartnership with all stakeholders along with healthcare team members to assure empowerment ofthe patients. It also states nurses to make patients active participants in their care. The carecomprises of the teams to follow proper ethics, standards and communication among allstakeholders to maintain best quality care and ensure patient satisfaction and patient safety at thesame time of going over their races, caste, creed and religion.
