Today marks International Day of the Midwife, which honours the work of midwives all over the world
On International Day of the Midwife, the INMO has actually granted its yearly rewards to members who have actually made impressive contributions to the union and its activities over the previous year.
The rewards were revealed at the INMO’s yearly delegate conference in Killarney, where over 300 nurses and midwives collected to discuss and talk about matters impacting nursing, midwifery, and the health service more broadly.
This year’s winners consisted of INMO associate at University Health center Limerick, Ann Noonan, who brought house the Gobnait O’Connell award for remarkable contributions to the nurses and midwives’ union; and Louth midwife Leasa Murphy, who won The CJ Coleman research study award for her task, “Checking out the views of just recently certified midwives to identify the aspects affecting their medical positioning experience as postgraduate trainee midwives.”
On the other hand, the yearly Preceptor of the Year award for impressive mentorship in nursing and midwifery was won by personnel nurse Marian McAuliffe of Bantry General Health center, chosen by trainee nurse Miriam Hanlon.
INMO President and Advanced Nurse Specialist at Beaumont Health Center, Karen McGowan, stated that these yearly rewards are a vital part of the conference and provide a chance to identify members of the INMO who go ‘above and beyond’ year in and year out.
” The competitors for these rewards is constantly difficult since we see numerous members aiming to choose their coworkers and colleagues to guarantee they get the acknowledgment they should have,” she stated.
” It’s so motivating every year to see nurses and midwives making every effort to get the most out of themselves and their occupations, and making sure the very best possible results for their coworkers, their trainees and their clients.”
