AIMSI recently created a number of on-line surveys in an effort to gauge public interest in the establishment of consumer groups in a number of our maternity units nationwide.
The campaign for their implementation is driven largely by the success of the OLOL Drogheda and Cavan groups and the need to “make health services more user-centred and more responsive to users’ needs”, in line with international best practice and recent Health Service Strategy and Reform as outlined by National Government.
The OLOL and Cavan Hospital Consumer Groups have made huge strides and have created keen international interest in creating a variety of sub-groups targeting key issues in these maternity units. Areas of focus include: Policy Guidelines and Protocols, Information, Home Birth and Midwife Led expansion schemes, Multicultural Issues, and Post Natal issues.
AIMSI are continuing to engage in discussion with hospital management in setting up similar groups, in other major maternity units in Ireland.
Thank you to all who have completed the relevant survey and for those who still wish to register their vote and comments, please browse links below. AIMSI will close these surveys December 31st 2008.
Again, if you are interested in becoming involved with a Consumer Group or would like to attend an AIMSI Regional meeting please contact AIMSI at firstname.lastname@example.org
