Webinar on the RUN ME Research Report
In December 2023, NMBI held a webinar with our colleagues in the Chief Nurse’s Office on the RUN ME Research Report, during which we heard from the Research Team and Principal Investigator Associate Professor, Mary Ryder.
The RUN ME project research evaluated the current undergraduate education programmes in the context of changing population healthcare needs.
The goal of the research project is to provide an evidence base upon which to build future undergraduate nursing and midwifery standards and requirements of programmes that are responsive to the changing needs, developments, priorities and expectations of healthcare in the context of Sláintecare.
The webinar focused on research recently completed by the RUN ME research team which was a collaboration of researchers from University College Dublin (UCD) School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems; Technological University of the Shannon: Midlands Midwest (TUS) and Atlantic Technological University: Mayo (ATU); The University of Notre Dame: Australia (UNDA) and St John of God Intellectual Disability Community Services (SJOG).
Attendees heard from Rachel Kenna, Chief Nursing Officer; our CEO, Sheila McClelland; Director of Education, Policy and Standards, Carolyn Donohoe; Principal Investigator, Associate Professor Mary Ryder, UCD; Associate Professor Michael Connolly, UCD and Our Lady's Hospice and Care Services; Professor Maria Brenner, UCD; Assistant Professor Dr Freda Browne, UCD; Assistant Professor Mary Curtin, UCD; Associate Professor Eileen Furlong, UCD; Margaret Prendergast, ATU; John Larkin, TUS and Margaret Meegan, SJOG.
