Description:
In 2013, the Department of Health elevated the post of CNO to Assistant Secretary level. This was done to ensure that a nursing and midwifery perspective is brought to bear on the development of policy within the Department. The Office of the CNO plays an important strategic and leadership role and provides professional policy direction and evidence based advice in relation to nursing and midwifery. The Office is built on a partnership model, with clinicians and civil servants working together to develop policy. The CNO is supported by specialist nursing and midwifery expertise from three Deputy CNOs. The three general areas for which the Deputy CNOs currently have respective responsibility are (i) Women’s Health, Child Health and Welfare, and Primary Care Services; (ii) Nursing and Midwifery Policy and Legislation; and (iii) Clinical Governance and Practice. The Department of Health is responsible for policy development and the Health Service Executive (HSE) is responsible for policy implementation and service delivery. Over time, the Office of the CNO, in partnership with the Office of the Nursing and Midwifery Services Director in the HSE, will develop a clinical innovation and integration portfolio intended to enhance scopes of practice, promote inter-disciplinary care and assist in the redesign of clinical services.
