Description:
The purpose of this discussion paper is to provide an update on topics and issues relating to nursing and midwifery interventions following the publication of the resource pack in 2006 and an overview of the work undertaken by the National Council since that time. In addition it seeks to prompt discussion about and reflection upon the environment in which nurses and midwives work today. This environment is made all the more complex because of the interdependencies and interrelationships between trends in health care and service delivery, expectations of patient safety and quality standards, the increasing sophistication of research and evidence, and many other factors. The emphasis of this paper is to make sense of the complex healthcare environment from a nursing and midwifery perspective, while not losing sight of the goals shared by everyone with a vested interest in ensuring that patients receive safe, high-quality care.
