Providing support for the Informing Healthcare programme in Wales

This article describes the establishment of an all-Wales nursing and midwifery steering group to support the activities of the Welsh information, communication and technology programme, known as Informing Healthcare. Early indications are that Informing Healthcare is communicating well with the steering group which, in turn, acts as an intermediary communicating with frontline nurses in Wales. Other organisations in the UK might be interested in the approach taken, particularly in involving nurses and other clinicians in information technology projects.
