Shared professional decision-making offers a vehicle to help drive transformational change which, when underpinned by evidence-based policy, provides a strong collective voice for nursing and midwifery.
Nursing and midwifery professionals have played and continue to play a critical role in the COVID-19 response.
The Nursing and Midwifery COVID-19 Catalogue of Change showcases a range of case studies from nurses and midwives working at the point of care across England; sharing experiences, innovations and solutions that illustrate the beneficial changes they have brought about during the pandemic and the ongoing restoration work.
The Nursing and Midwifery COVID-19 Catalogue of Change complements the CNO’s Shared Professional Decision-Making Councils where nursing and midwifery colleagues come together to discuss and debate professional, clinical and operational matters that are important to them, their colleagues and those that they care for – sharing learning from the pandemic and recommending beneficial changes that they agree should be captured and ‘locked-in’ moving forwards.
These councils provide a valuable opportunity for the free exchange of ideas and learning. With a strong clinical focus, and a variety of backgrounds, skills and experiences members also support the CNO to hear about what matters, and enact her collective leadership ethos of #teamCNO and #1ProfessionalVoice
The Nursing and Midwifery COVID-19 Catalogue of Change will be regularly updated with new case studies, should you wish to find out more about this work or submit a case study please contact email@example.com
