Spring 2018 CNME HSE West (LCNTR) Diary of Learning Events January 2018 - August 2018
Foreword
On behalf of the CNME HSE West (Limerick, Clare & North Tipperary), it is my pleasure to present the Spring 2018
edition of the Centre for Nurse and Midwifery Education (CNME) HSE West (LCNTR) Diary of Learning Events (DLE).
This DLE has been informed by training and education needs identified by Nursing and Midwifery Service HSE West in
CHO3 and UHL Hospitals Group.

The availability of continuing education programmes/learning events has been prioritised in accordance with
available resources and service needs. The CNME produces a DLE twice yearly, in Spring and Autumn. Some
programmes/learning events are scheduled on an annual basis, while other programmes are scheduled more
frequently, subject to service need and resources available. There are occasions when additional education and
training events are scheduled within the life span of the current CNME DLE. In such cases, programmes/learning
events are advertised via flyer to relevant stakeholders four to six weeks prior to programme/learning event
delivery.

All programmes/learning events facilitated by CNME HSE West (LCNTR) have Category 1 approval with CEU's
(Continuing Education Credits) allocated by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI). Learning outcomes of
programmes/learning events are set at level 8 unless otherwise stated. All local programmes/learning events facilitated
by the CNME are developed and revised in consultation with relevant clinical experts. All programmes/learning
events are evaluated and revised as appropriate in partnership with relevant stakeholders. Learning event
attendees are provided with an electronic copy of learning event presentations as appropriate following attendance.

Health care professionals working outside the HSE Mid-West Area and in the private sector may access
programmes/learning events advertised within the DLE subject to the availability of programme/learning event places. Priority
is given to UHLG and CHO3 HSE applicants as agreed by the CNME HSE West (LCNTR) Board of Management. No
attendance fee applies. Programmes/learning events applicable to registered practising midwives may be accessed by
Self Employed Independent Midwives, Practice Nurses who are Registered Practising Midwives and Public Health
Nurses. The target audience for programmes/learning events is Registered Nurses and Registered Midwives.
Other members of the multidisciplinary team will be facilitated as appropriate to attend CNME programmes/
learning events on a prior booking basis subject to programme/learning event place availability and venue size.

The CNME welcome communication from all stakeholders on new or additional training and education
requirements which may not be addressed within this DLE.

Sincere thanks to all members of the multidisciplinary team locally, regionally and nationally who support the CNME
in responding to service education and training needs identified. We appreciate your ongoing support.

Yours sincerely,

              th
December 15        2017.
