Framework launched for nursing and midwifery


09 / 7 / 2013 1.23pm

Following engagement with key stakeholders, the Quality Assurance (QA) framework's principle aim is to ensure patient safety. 



It aims to:

  • increase lay involvement through the increased use of reviewers who are neither nurses nor midwives
  • increase the proactive management of emerging risk by ensuring that education institutions and local supervising authorities (LSAs) have appropriate safeguards in place
  • over the three-year cycle, reduce the burden of regulation on well performing education institutions and LSAs
  • ensure that quality assurance focuses on outcomes of education and midwifery supervision as opposed to dictating how standards should be met.
