A new legal framework for abortion services in Northern Ireland - Barriers, Best Practice & Learning for Nurses & Midwives

The whole discussion will be in keeping with the RCN Consultation response Point 15 -

“Central to this issue is the need to continue to raise awareness of the issues surrounding the termination of pregnancy in Northern Ireland, the new legal requirements and, perhaps most importantly of all, to ensure that appropriate education and support is available, not just for health care staff but for women, their families and friends, and the people of Northern Ireland more widely. Education must embrace, in particular, young people through programmes such as the multi-agency Relationship and Sexuality Education project.

It is essential that we, as a society, can continue to move towards a greater tolerance of divergent views and develop both the capacity and desire to conduct debate on what, we recognise, remain contentious issues for many people in Northern Ireland, in a respectful and courteous manner.”
