Nurses and Midwives for Inclusion Health

Nurses and Midwives for Inclusion Health: Partnership in Practice is a new professional interest group of nurse and midwife practitioners working in contexts where access to/uptake of health services is limited as a result of marginalisation, discrimination or lack of awareness.

Examples of these practice areas include: homeless health, migrant/refugee health, traveller health, mental health, disability health, forensic and prisoner health, addiction health, sexual health. The aims of NMIH are to share and develop excellence in nursing and midwifery inclusion health and to support practitioners who often feel isolated from ‘mainstream’ health systems in these peripheral and clinically demanding work contexts.

In collaboration with the School of Nursing, Psychotherapy and Community Health, Dublin City University and The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation, NMIH invite you to their inaugural networking event and launch on Friday 29th November, 9.30am – 4pm. This event will consist of a keynote address from Sam Dorney-Smith followed by presentations and discussion of contemporary Irish Nursing and Midwifery Inclusion Health practice, professional development and research. The day will conclude with the launch of our new professional interest group.

You can also enrich this event by contributing a poster or a 15 minute presentation concerning an aspect of your practice/research in Inclusion Health.

Some ideas for presentations/posters are:

  • A description of a recent practice/research project in the area of inclusion health
  • An Inclusion Health issue or approach that needs to be communicated/ discussed
  • A ‘provocative’ question
  • A case study
  • An arts based presentation/ workshop/ project relevant to inclusion health
  • Another idea!

Please email a short abstract (250 words) outlining the content of your poster or presentation to by the deadline of 25 October 2019. Registration for this event is 25 euro to cover catering and administration costs and places can be booked here.

Please note: A helpful (and free) workshop; Posters, Presentations and Papers, which is designed to support nurses and midwives with poster, presentation and journal article preparation will be held in DCU on 10th October. Details and booking here.

NMBI category 1 approval is currently being sought for both events.
