A Regional Nursing and Midwifery Strategy
During August 2009 the Department hosted a series of workshops across the province to engage with members of the nursing and midwifery community and other stakeholders in the development of a regional strategy for nursing and midwifery.
Through the five workshops 150 participants were afforded the opportunity to contribute and to shape this document under the four strategic themes of:
- Developing person centred cultures
- Supporting learning and development
- Promoting safe and effective care and
- Maximising resources for success.
This work, led by senior nurses, midwives and patient representatives, will build upon the strategies developed by each of the Trusts and is an opportunity to recognise the contribution made by the community of nursing and midwifery to the health and wellbeing of our population.
