Nursing and Midwifery Clinical Practice Development Unit

The Nursing and Midwifery Clinical Practice Development Unit focuses on the development of clinical services to ensure they are evidence-based, person-centred and family-focused.

The Nursing and Midwifery Clinical Practice Development Unit (NMCPDU) was established in June 2011. It supersedes the previous Department of Nursing and Midwifery Research and Practice Development. The NMCPDU focuses on the development of clinical services to ensure they are evidence-based, person-centred and family-focused. This is achieved by supporting staff to question, challenge and systematically assess current practice within the context of care. The NMCPDU also assists with the development of workplace culture in order to facilitate the professional growth of individuals, improve team work and staff satisfaction and to facilitate service improvement.
