|dc.description||Welcome to the Spring/Summer 2010 edition of NCNM Review! Our regular Health Service Reform Programme slot focuses on the reform of cancer screening services taking place in the context of the European Partnership for Action against Cancer. Referring to the Health Information and Quality Authority’s evaluation of the use of resources for cancer screening, the article identifies best practice in the area of screening for colorectal cancer and indicates how nurses at all levels can use opportunities to play an important role in this activity. A great deal of progress has been made in recent years in Ireland in the fight against cancer. The National Council is committed to continuing to highlight opportunities for nursing and midwifery to make vital contributions to this work. Regular readers of the NCNM Review will already be aware of the work being done by the National Council in the evaluation of the effectiveness of nursing and midwifery practice. In particular, the National Council is involved in a major study aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of advanced nursing/midwifery practice. A recent opportunity arose to look at how our colleagues in Canada approach this work. An expert in this area, Prof Denise Bryant-Lukosius, spoke at our National Conference in 2009, having facilitated a pre-conference workshop on this topic for advanced nurse and midwife practitioners and their supporters.||en_GB|
