Year of the Nurse and Midwife – Enabling Professionalism project 2021

Dear members

We have had the request as below for anyone willing to participate from the independent sector around 3 fields of nursing: adult, mental health and learning disabilities.

As you will remember, 2020 was the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. As a continuation of the activities, Scotland is participating in a cross-UK and whole Ireland promotion, related to the Enabling Professionalism, about what it is that midwives and nurses actually do.

As part of this, we are looking for midwives and nurses working in a variety of settings, who reflect the diversity of the professions, who would be happy to be filmed (perhaps for a day) to show what they do. The specific details aren’t set in stone yet and further information will come later, but at this stage, we are collecting names and contact details of those who might be prepared to take part.

Overall, we are looking for one name from each field of nursing, and one from midwifery, for each of the following areas of practice:

  • Research
  • Education
  • Policy
  • Practice
  • Private sector

Please forward any names to myself at [email protected] of anyone who would be interested in being involved. I have been advised that we need 3 names, one from each field of nursing by the end of April.

Thanks,

Jacqui Neil
