|dc.description||Welcome to the combined Spring/Summer NCNM Review! Regular readers will notice that we have made some changes during 2008. As a result of the communications survey conducted at the end of 2007, we have decided to publish the Review twice a year from now on – June and October during 2008 and March and September from 2009 onwards. A more detailed report on the communications survey is contained in this edition of the Review – thanks to all of you who took part. The survey provided a very solid endorsement of the editorial policy being followed in the Review – the content is directly related to your stated preferences. Since our last Review, 24 additional ANP posts have been approved. One existing ANP, Olivia Smith, ANP (Emergency), St James' Hospital, has been re-accredited after five years service, and six new ANPs have been accredited. Congratulations to all of you. It is clear from our work that there continues to be a great demand within the services for the work of the ANPs and CNSs to work alongside staff nurses and midwives in developing and delivering innovative nursing and midwifery practice to patients and clients. As part of our policy to keep our procedures and practices for the establishment and accreditation of ANP posts at the leading edge of best practice, two key documents on these topics have been updated and are reported on in this edition of the Review. This is enhanced by the work of professional development activity at the front line of service, as evidenced by the report from Ann Kelleher of Kerry General Hospital on the use of an evidence base for the development of ANP services.||en_GB|
