INMO recognises outstanding members at annual conference


Today marks International Day of the Midwife, which honours the work of midwives around the world

On International Day of the Midwife, the INMO has awarded its annual prizes to members who have made outstanding contributions to the union and its activities over the past year.

The prizes were announced at the INMO’s annual delegate conference in Killarney, where over 300 nurses and midwives gathered to debate and discuss matters affecting nursing, midwifery, and the health service more broadly.

This year’s winners included INMO rep at University Hospital Limerick, Ann Noonan, who brought home the Gobnait O’Connell award for exceptional contributions to the nurses and midwives’ union; and Louth midwife Leasa Murphy, who won The CJ Coleman research award for her project, “Exploring the views of recently qualified midwives to determine the factors influencing their clinical placement experience as postgraduate student midwives.”

The INMO’s annual Preceptor of the Year award for outstanding mentorship in nursing and midwifery was won by staff nurse Marian McAuliffe of Bantry General Hospital, nominated by student nurse Miriam Hanlon

INMO President and Advanced Nurse Practitioner at Beaumont Hospital, Karen McGowan, said that these annual prizes are an important part of the conference and present an opportunity to recognise members of the INMO who go ‘above and beyond’ year in and year out.

“The competition for these prizes is always tough because we see so many members looking to nominate their colleagues and teammates to ensure they get the recognition they deserve,” she said.

“It’s so inspiring every year to see nurses and midwives striving to get the most out of themselves and their professions, and ensuring the best possible outcomes for their colleagues, their students and their patients.”
