Nursing & Midwifery - Living the Values 

The Values for Nurses and Midwives in Ireland – National Awareness Programme aims  to engage nurses and midwives in all sectors of the health service (clinical, education, leadership and management) and nursing and midwifery students to familiarise themselves with, and reflect on using the agreed core values of Compassion, Care and Commitment and their associated behaviours, to inform their decision-making. A  position paper was launched as part of this initiative, which sets out the core values and the behaviours that nurses and midwives in Ireland have identified.  

You can also find more information regarding the Values Initiative on the Department of Health's website.
