Description:
The purpose of this policy document is to provide a strategic framework to further expand the role of nurses and midwives to promote delivery of quality care by nurses and midwives. Role expansion encompasses becoming more competent, reflective practitioners and developing expertise and skills to meet patients’/clients’ needs in a holistic manner. Expansion may refer STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK FOR ROLE EXPANSION OF NURSES AND MIDWIVES: PROMOTING QUALITY PATIENT CARE 7 to a change in the overall scope of practice of the professions to include areas of practice that have not hitherto been within the remit of nurses or midwives; or it may refer to a change in the scope of practice of an individual nurse or midwife to include areas of practice that have not been within his/her scope of practice but are within the overall scope of practice of the nursing and midwifery professions (An Bord Altranais 2000a). The Strategic Framework for Role Expansion of Nurses and Midwives outlines step by step processes for consideration of nursing and midwifery role expansion. This promotes the development and enhancement of nursing and midwifery roles in response to patient and service need and national policy direction. The policy document was guided by a Steering Group of key stakeholders which was established in May 2009.
