"Riachtanais traenála agus scileanna altranais a aithint maidir le soghluaisteacht, agus creat scileanna a fhorbairt"

The Department of Nursing and Health Studies at St Angela's College is a small school located in Sligo, in the North-West Ireland, providing Registered Nurses across a wide rural area of Ireland with opportunities for professional development and up-skilling from a community and acute care orientation (Disciplines of Mental Health, General, Public Health & Intellectual disability).

Considerable work has been performed within Ireland relating to Intercultural practice (HSE, 2008). The population of Ireland has significantly altered as the result of immigration rather than a traditional position of emigration. In Co Sligo nursing mobility is limited, with most nurses remaining in local employment for many years. The nursing workforce includes nurses from overseas namely the Philippines and India. Increase in immigration mean that patients using healthcare facilities increasingly include many migrant populations particularly eastern Europeans, emanating from countries recently accessing the European Union.

'TraNSforM' will enable Irish nurses in the Sligo area to participate in designing a skills and knowledge framework using their current experiences of working with a cultural development officer. Health care workers will become aware of culturally different attitudes and practices in relation to health and equipped to deal with the various challenges they may encounter in working with patients from different cultures. The mobility actions of 'TraNSforM' will also continue to help to facilitate increased integration of participating Sligo nurses into an EU healthcare workforce as part of their lifelong learning. Participants from Sligo in this project will gain an understanding of the complexity of mobility. The silent partners will be working together with St. Angelas´s College to disseminate the process and outcomes. The websites of both silent partners will be used in the first instance, with local and national conferences and seminars in addition to media publications (professional journals, publications of the HSE and specific local press).
