Commission sets out future

A vision that will allow nurses and midwives to transform quality of care has been set out by the Prime Minister’s Commission on the Future of Nursing and Midwifery. Commissioners have also identified ten hot topics that they wish to probe and debate further such as the need to address the confusion over roles and titles of nurses and midwives, and the role of nurses and midwives in putting users of health services in charge of their own care.

Health Minister and Commission Chair Ann Keen said:

“We have had an overwhelming response to the first stage of our crucial work in shaping the future of nursing and midwifery and received over 2,500 individual and organisational responses reflecting the views of many thousands of people.

“The Commission has reflected on these responses and identified some hot topics that we want to hear more views on during the autumn. As a nurse, I believe these issues go to the very heart of shaping the future of our profession and I look forward to hearing detailed suggestions on how we can tackle them which will help shape the detail of our report.”
