National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery quarterly review: Spring 2005: issue 17.
National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery
The first of January ushered in a new era for the health services in Ireland. The Health Service Executive commenced its role as the single accountable body for the delivery of health services. The work of the National Council will continue in the new environment – all the staff of the Council look forward to continuing to deliver professional development services in a way that contributes to the achievement of the overall objectives of the services. One of the central roles of the National Council is to work closely with the nursing and midwifery planning and development units within each region, to plan and make provision for additional funding for continuing education. This is the fifth year in which the Council has fulfilled this role. This funding is over and above the normal funding that each region has available to it for this purpose. It is intended to be used to address areas of continuing education that might not normally be funded. Thus, for example, one of the most important functions of this funding would be to ensure that greater access to post-registration training and education is provided to nurses and midwives outside of the greater population areas.
