National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery: quarterly review: Summer 2006: issue 22.
National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery
A unique event in nursing and midwifery on the island of Ireland took place in Dublin Castle on the 5th April 2006, namely the launch of the All-Ireland Practice and Quality Development Database. This cross-border initiative came about as a result of co-operation between the Northern Ireland Practice and Education Council for Nursing and Midwifery (NIPEC) and the National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery. The idea for the database emerged from the All-Ireland Nursing and Public Health Project – Vision to Action as a result of recommendations of the Practice Development Sub-Group of this project. The database itself was established by NIPEC and we in the National Council are very pleased to be associated with its further development and launch. The Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children, Mary Harney sponsored the event and the Secretary General at the Department of Health and Children, Mr Michael Scanlan, officiated at the launch. The database will provide a focal point for gathering and disseminating good practice, recognising innovation and personal achievement, and raising awareness of practice and quality initiatives throughout the island of Ireland. It is designed to provide information and encourage access to examples of good nursing and midwifery practice. This should avoid unnecessary duplication of effort and enhance networking opportunities. The database can be accessed on our website at www.ncnm.ie
