Description : The Challenge of Change is a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of a major transition period in Ireland's health system. Brendan Drumm records his experiences as chief executive of the Health Service Executive (2005–2010) and recounts his vision for Ireland's health service. While acknowledging the problems with and criticisms of the HSE, Drumm's vision has been and still is one of reform. The Challenge of Change: Discusses how the foundations for an integrated healthcare system were laid in Drumm's five years in the HSE.Highlights the obstacles to an integrated healthcare system and healthcare reform in Ireland, including the political and public service system, and the challenge of bringing doctors, nurses and other clinicians along with change.Discusses all the major issues that Drumm dealt with in his role and that the HSE is still dealing with, including the National Children's Hospital, developing primary care teams, the new consultants' contract and major adverse events.Gives an insider's view on the challenges to reform in a public sector context, which feeds into the wider problem of consensus in Ireland's governance structures – in anything from the banks to the political system. "He provides a rare insight into the machinations of health services delivery often threading a fine balancing act between political masters, the aspirations of a general public with parochial interests, and an unyielding bureaucracy long accustomed to doing things its own way." Tom Brett, Director of General Practice and Primary Health Care Research, School of Medicine, The University of Notre Dame, Australia, British Journal of General Practice, July 2012

Clinical Directorates in the Irish Health Services provides Irish clinical professionals with a resource to assist them in understanding the clinical directorate model and their own role within it.

Description : Over the past ten years, nursing and midwifery in Ireland have experienced a considerable number of changes, driven principally by the Report of the Commission on Nursing, published in 1998, and the health service reform programme, announced in 2003. In the same period, Irish society has become wealthier and more culturally diverse, creating new challenges for nursing and midwifery. In Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland, Yvonne O'Shea sets out to identify the role for nursing and midwifery in the health services of the future in Ireland and to formulate a strategy for the professional development required for the professions. The book has three parts. Part 1 sets out to establish the context within which the professions of nursing and midwifery operate in Ireland by examining the implications of recent key policy developments and the roles played by the Report of the Commission on Nursing and the National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery. Part 2 forms the core of the book and is based on seventy-seven interviews with senior figures in the health services, including policymakers, service managers, medical consultants, educators and leaders of nursing and midwifery. Part 3 goes on to outline a strategy for the professional development of nursing and midwifery, including key steps necessary to reach objectives and to realise the strategy's long-term vision. Published at a time of significant change within the health services in Ireland, the book is intended as a contribution to ensuring that nursing and midwifery take their place at the heart of health service transformation. It will be of great value to all role players in the Irish health service.

Description : This book provides an international comparative study of the implementation of disability rights law and policy focused on the emerging principles of self-determination and personalisation. It explores how these principles have been enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and how different jurisdictions have implemented them to enable meaningful engagement and participation by persons with disabilities in society. The philosophy of 'active citizenship' underpinning the Convention - that all citizens should (be able to) actively participate in the community - provides the core focal point of this book, which grounds its analysis in exploring how this goal has been imagined and implemented across a range of countries. The case studies examine how different jurisdictions have reformed disability law and policy and reconfigured how support is administered and funded to ensure maximum choice and independence is accorded to people with disabilities.

Description : Practice Nurses play an important and pivotal role in healthcare providing a range of interventions and services to patients in General Practice and Primary Care settings. While most Practice Nurses work in GP surgeries and doctor led clinics, others are working as autonomous practitioners in community practices and nurse led centres. Practice Nurses are presented with an ever increasing range of conditions and patient needs as the role is constantly changing and evolving. The extended roles and range of clinical skills which may be provided by a Practice Nurse depend on the needs of the patient and the qualifications, skills, competencies and scope of practice of each individual Practice Nurse (NMBI, 2015). Practice Nurses have a responsibility to ensure that they are suitably qualified, skilled and competent in carrying out each clinical procedure and intervention that they undertake. Developing guidelines for clinical practice is an important part of the Practice Nurse role, but the task of researching, developing and producing guidelines is time-consuming, and it can be difficult to find the information required as and when needed. Practice Nursing: Clinical Guidelines and Procedures in Practice written by a Practice Nurse, and based on local and national guidelines, provides a comprehensive overview and a step by step guide for nurses carrying out a wide range of clinical procedures in practice. The book contains over 100 clinical guidelines and procedures with illustrations, tables, charts and diagrams. In producing these clinical guidelines, the author hopes that this book will prove useful as a resource and reference guide for other nurses in general practice and primary care settings.

Description : This book provides a critical and theoretically-informed assessment of the nature and types of structural change occurring in the Irish welfare state in the context of the 2008 economic crisis. Its overarching framework for conceptualising and analysing welfare state change and its political, economic and social implications is based around four crucial questions, namely what welfare is for, who delivers welfare, who pays for welfare, and who benefits. Over the course of ten chapters, the authors examine the answers as they relate to social protection, labour market activation, pensions, finance, water, early child education and care, health, housing and corporate welfare. They also innovatively address the impact of crisis on the welfare state in Northern Ireland. The result is to isolate key drivers of structural welfare reform, and assess how globalisation, financialisation, neo-liberalisation, privatisation, marketisation and new public management have deepened and diversified their impact on the post-crisis Irish welfare state. This in-depth analysis will appeal to sociologists, economists, political scientists and welfare state practitioners interested in the Irish welfare state and more generally in the analysis of welfare state change.

Description : Given the increasing shift of care from state residential services to community-based support, this book examines the complex geographies of family caregiving for young adults with intellectual disabilities. It traces how family ‘carers’ are directly and indirectly affected by a broad array of law and policy, including family policy, disability legislation, and health and community care restructuring policy. Each of these has material and institutional effects and is premised on the discourses, ideologies, and interactions in the state over time. Focusing on the welfare models of England, the US and Ireland, this book compares the welfare ideologies in each country and examines how the specific historical, cultural, and political contexts give rise to different landscapes of care and disability. Further, the book explores the unique lifeworlds of family carers of young adults with intellectual disability within the broader landscape of care in which they are situated.
