Description:
Since 2001, the National Council has provided nurses and midwives with opportunities to access a wide range of continuing education activities. Each year, over €2 million is spent by the Council on these important developments. In June of this year, some new procedures were agreed relating to the allocation of this funding. Details of the new arrangements are contained in the News and Updates section of this issue of the NCNM Quarterly Review. In addition to what we already do in the area of continuing professional development for nurses and midwives, a new forum for staff nurses and staff midwives is now being launched. Further details are contained in the Focus on the Frontline section of this Quarterly Review. The Council is keen to obtain the views of staff nurses and midwives on how we can help them to address their professional development needs. This forum will also complement the on-going work encapsulated by the Practice and Quality Development Database which was created to facilitate the sharing of good practice among nurses and midwives throughout the whole island of Ireland. This issue of the Quarterly Review also contains a lot of information on the development of the clinical career pathway for nurses and midwives. In the Getting Set Up section, we bring news of the approval of the first site for an advanced nurse practitioner (ANP) in care of the older person. We also publish an interview with the first ANP ever to be accredited by the National Council in Ireland, Valerie Small, who has been re-accredited for a further five years. Updates on the clinical nurse/midwife specialist and the advanced nurse/midwife practitioner frameworks are provided, as well as a position paper on clinical nurse/midwife specialists and advanced nurse/midwife practitioners in care of the older person. In this issue we also provide a detailed piece on the work of the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), which is responsible for driving quality and safety in Ireland’s health and social care services. The work of HIQA is one of the cornerstones of the health service reform programme, which we have covered extensively in the Quarterly Review over the last number of years. It is important that nurses and midwives are familiar with its work and the implications it has for professional and service standards.
