Description:
The development of specialist and advanced practice roles in Ireland is part of the strategic development of the overall health service and is taking place in the context of contemporary health and social policy, the requirements of population health and the service planning process. National policy documents such as the Report of the Commission on Nursing (Government of Ireland 1998) and the national health strategy Quality and Fairness: A Health System for You (DoHC 2001) recommend the development of specialist and advanced nursing practice posts within the framework of the National Council. Part of the mission of the National Council is to provide guidance to the health services on development of nursing practice to meet emerging patient/client needs. This position paper aims to address the specific implications related to specialist and advanced practice in emergency nursing. The National Council welcomes and supports the development of specialist and advanced practice in emergency nursing and has initiated and formalised the processes, by developing frameworks for the establishment of Clinical Nurse Specialist/ Clinical Midwife Specialist (CNS/CMS) and Advanced Nurse Practitioner/ Advanced Midwife Practitioner (ANP/AMP) posts. There are 1,662 CNS/CMS and 24 ANP posts approved by the National Council to date. In 2003 the National Council completed a review of CNS posts in Ireland (National Council 2003) and is currently conducting a research study evaluating the role of the ANP.
