High Impact Actions for Nursing and Midwifery

A group of 8 examples of high-quality and cost-effective care by nurses and midwives which, if adopted across the NHS, would make a transformational difference in patient care by creating a better workplace, improving quality and the patient experience. The HIAs were based on 600 ideas submitted by nurses and midwives, and include strategies to prevent pressure ulcers, infections, and falls; promote normal childbirth; improve nutrition for more rapid return to health; and help the terminally ill choose where to die when the time comes.
