Description:
Much of the remodelling of the acute medicine services has been medically or organisationally driven and the role of the nurse in AMAU1 has not been strategically focussed upon. To compound this, there is limited literature available nationally and internationally to support and guide the development of the AMAU nurse’s role, function, scope, skills and competencies. No acute medicine nursing skills and competencies directory exists in Ireland. As acute medicine nursing evolves in this rapidly growing medical care specialty, there is a recognised need for the development of additional clinical expertise among the acute medicine nurses to address care needs, given the acuity of patients presenting, the high volume, quick turnover and care management within the assessment phase. Developing core, expanding and advancing nursing skills and competencies in acute medicine requires an evidence based development framework skills and competencies directory, underpinned and rooted in the definitions, models and theories of the nursing profession. The need to provide safe, quality nursing care within this emerging area provided the impetus for the development of this first national development framework, skills and competencies directory. A guiding principle of the development of the acute medicine nursing development framework was the codesign with frontline nursing staff and their nurse managers. The co-design methodology was achieved through the workings of the Acute Medicine Nursing Interest Group (AMNIG), established in 2012. The consultation and communication process enabled AMNIG members to explore, define and redefine the key elements of acute medicine nursing as the group learned more and the AMAUs developed.
