Description:
Similar to other countries, there have been a number of high profile reports into past and recent cases of child abuse and neglect in Ireland. The most recent of these reports in Ireland have been the Monageer Inquiry, the Ryan Report, the Roscommon Child Care Case and the Report of the Independent Child Death Review Group. An analysis of these reports highlights the critical role played by public health nurses with troubled families. It also makes explicit key issues that consistently emerge as problematic in terms of professional practice. This paper summarises the main findings of these reports as they relate to the public health nursing service and identifies key themes emerging along with recommendations arising. The emerging themes relate to assessment, early intervention, record keeping, communication and inter-disciplinary working, and, the role of public health nursing management.
