Guiding Framework for the Implementation for Nurse and Midwife Prescribing in Ireland

Creator:

Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland

Description:

The past decade has seen unprecedented development and change in the Irish healthcare system, both in the wider context and in the nursing and midwifery professions. One of the most important and significant developments, not only for nurses and midwives, but for patients or service users and the healthcare system as a whole, was the enactment of legislation and regulations giving prescriptive authority to nurses and midwives. This legislation was introduced by Mary Harney TD, Minister for Health and Children, in May 2007. It enables a registered nurse or midwife, who has completed an approved education programme, has the appropriate clinical experience, is registered with An Bord Altranais as a Registered Nurse Prescriber, and has authority from the health service provider that employs them, to prescribe a range of medicinal products within their scope of practice.
