|dc.description||The fifth annual conference of the National Council takes place in Jury’s Hotel, Ballsbridge, Dublin on the 16th and 17th November 2005. The theme for this year’s conference is Innovation for the Health Services: Nurses and Midwives Promoting Change. The conference will be opened by the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children, Mary Harney, TD, who will also deliver the keynote address. In addition, Mr Michael Scanlan, Secretary General of the Department of Health and Children, will speak on the Policy Role of the Department of Health and Children within the Irish Health Service. The programme for the conference includes speakers from the USA, New Zealand and Ireland. In previous years, about 1,000 nurses and midwives have attended the conference over the two days. The conference is an important element of the work of the Council as it gives us an opportunity to address the key issues affecting the profession today and to provide nurses and midwives with a space for reflection and networking. This issue of the NCNM Quarterly Review also contains a special report on the Council’s publication An Evaluation of the Extent and Nature of Nurse-Led/Midwife-Led Services in Ireland. This report is based on a major research exercise carried out by the Council. The recommendations in the report are intended to provide a framework for the development of nurse-led/midwife-led services. A full copy of the report is available on our website (www.ncnm.ie).||en_GB|
