MCaFHNA

The Maternal Child and Family Health Nurses Australia is the peak professional body in Australia for nurses working with parents of children from birth to five years of age.

What Is MCaFHNA?

The association’s main aim is to provide a voice for Maternal, Child & Family Health Nurses, speaking out on issues that affect not just members of the Association but families with young children from 0 - 5 years of age.

The Association also monitors and contributes to policy development and legislation affecting child and family health at the national level.

The Maternal, Child and Family Health Nurses  Australia Inc. (formerly the Australian Association of Maternal, Child and Family Health Nurses) provides a platform for that voice.

Our journal, The Australian Journal of Child and Family Health Nurses,  promotes best practice through the reporting of up-to-date research and useful practice information, hence benefiting members and the community at large.


The Maternal Child and Family Health Nurses of Australia - MCaFHNA (formerly, Australian Association of Maternal, Child & Family Health Nurses) - 5th National Conference.

The fifth biennial conference was held in Canberra at the National Convention Centre on 9, 10 and 11 May 2013

The conference was a great success as all the attendees I am sure will agree.
The conference review and LOADS of great photos are now on the conference page.

This was a double celebration as our nations beautiful capital, is celebrating the ‘Centenary of Canberra’ throughout 2013.
