Description:
As the days get shorter and the leaves turn to gold, our thoughts in the National Council begin to focus on the annual conference. The theme for this year is Integrated Health Services Supporting Patient Care Pathways and the conference will take place at Croke Park on Wednesday 19 November 2008. In order to reach as large an audience as possible, we are making arrangements to have the conference streamed over the internet. This also ensures that nurses and midwives can view the conference on our website at their own convenience. We are delighted that once again Mary Harney, TD, the Minister for Health and Children, will open our conference with a keynote address. A registration form is included at the back of this Review. I look forward to seeing many of you again! Since our last NCNM Review was distributed, the much-awaited Report of the Commission on Patient Safety and Quality Assurance has been published and is entitled Building a Culture of Patient Safety. In this edition, we provide a summary of some of the key points that are addressed in the report. This is an important contribution to the national debate on quality and safety within our health services. It contains much that is of direct relevance to nursing and midwifery. One of the key conclusions of the report is that professionals have a responsibility to keep themselves up to date through a process of continuing professional development. This is a recommendation that is at the heart of the work of the National Council.
