Description:
Introduction Scope of Practice: the range of roles, functions, responsibilities and activities which a registered nurse or registered midwife is educated, competent and has authority to perform. In 2000, the Scope of Nursing and Midwifery Practice Framework was developed by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) (formerly An Bord Altranais) to support nurses and midwives in developing their individual professional roles. Since then, the Scope Framework, with its decision-making algorithm, has been a keystone of guidance for the professions. Recognising that signifi cant changes and developments have taken place within the context of the Irish health care service, education and professional practice and regulation, the NMBI commenced a project to review and revise the 2000 Scope document. The NMBI wanted to ensure its guidance continued to support nurses and midwives practising in an increasing complex and challenging health care environment.
