The Practice Development Team at Marymount University Hospital & Hospice aims to encourage staff to continually develop and advance practice, in order to promote high quality patient focused care. We facilitate and support staff to create and take ownership of change, in line with best practice and agreed standards.
The team supports the development of policies and procedures, in order to structure and maintain the high standards of care that the hospital is well known for. This is undertaken with an emphasis on continuous professional and personal development, to ensure knowledge and evaluation of the most up to date skills, developments and policies are incorporated into practice.
Also, working with the Education Centre, we ensure that the clinical areas in the hospital, to which students are assigned for clinical placements, provide optimum learning environments and are meeting the learning objectives set by the third level institutes.
