Associate Senior Professional Officer

NIPEC began working in partnership with the Public Health Agency, DoH, five HSC Trusts and the RCN in September 2011 to identify a set of high level Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure, evidence and monitor the impact and unique contribution of nursing and midwifery on the quality of patient and client care. The overall aim of the Evidencing Care through Key Performance Indicators for Nursing and Midwifery project is to support nursing and midwifery staff in sustaining change to practice which enhances the patient/client experience through a standardised approach to measuring and monitoring KPIs.

The initial phase of this work resulted in the agreement of a set of high level regional Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for Nursing and Midwifery.

A Regional Professional Advisory Group, chaired by Charlotte McArdle, Chief Nursing Officer, DoH, meets on a quarterly basis to develop, agree and review the KPIs for Nursing and Midwifery.
