National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery: newsletter: Summer 2003: issue 10.
National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery
The National Council is approaching the middle of its fourth year of operations. In this issue, we provide details of the forthcoming third National Conference which will be held this year on 19 and 20 November in the Alexander Hotel in Dublin. The theme for this year is meeting the challenge of interdisciplinary co-operation within the healthcare services. The conference will also provide the opportunity for the increasingly popular poster presentations by nurses and midwives on their own practice situations. You will find a registration form and detailed information in this newsletter and, as usual, information and registration facilities are also available on our website at www.ncnm.ie. Almost one thousand nurses and midwives attended each of our last two conferences. We look forward to a similar enthusiastic response this year. The main feature of this newsletter is a pull-out supplement containing a summary of the forthcoming publication Professional Development for Nursing and Midwifery: Agenda for Future Development. A Discussion Paper. This document contains the results of an extensive research and consultation process that has taken place over the last twelve months. The consultation process involved over eight hundred nurses and midwives, twenty-two workshops, and additional meetings with key stakeholders from all over the country. Submissions were received from nurses and midwives from every branch on the register and an extensive literature review was conducted. The purpose of this document is to identify the key development issues facing nursing and midwifery in the future and to establish a strong platform for the formulation of strategic responses to these issues. The National Council is very appreciative of the work and commitment of all those who participated in this consultation and discussion process.
