|dc.description||In this issue of the NCNM Quarterly Review we report on the outcome of a very significant research exercise that was commissioned by the National Council in partnership with the Health Research Board (HRB) and aimed at identifying the research priorities for nursing and midwifery in Ireland. The final report of this research was launched recently at an event in Dublin Castle by the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children, Mary Harney. The report identifies twenty-four research priorities for nursing and twenty-six for midwifery, which, according to Dr Therese Meehan, who led the research team, reflect European and North American trends and suggest research programmes that target health service concerns. Principal among these priorities for clinical and managerial and educational nursing are outcomes of care delivery, recruitment and retention of nurses and evidence-based practice. For midwifery, the main priorities include satisfaction with care, promoting women-centred care and promoting the distinctiveness of midwifery. This report is an important milestone in the implementation of the recommendations of the Research Strategy for Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland produced by the Department of Health and Children. I would commend the report to every nurse and midwife interested in getting involved in research that is aimed at improving the quality and delivery of our health services.||en_GB|
