About us

Nurses and Midwives for Inclusion Health: Partnership in Practice is a new professional interest group of nurse and midwife practitioners working in contexts where access to/uptake of health services is limited as a result of marginalisation, discrimination or lack of awareness.

Examples of these practice areas include: homeless health, migrant/refugee health, Traveller health, mental health, disability health, forensic and prisoner health, addiction health, sexual health.

The aims of NMIH are to share and develop excellence in nursing and midwifery inclusion health and to support practitioners in professional and practice development, education and research.

Inclusion health

"Inclusion health aims to prevent and redress the harms of extreme inequity among the most vulnerable and excluded populations, through advocacy, policy, research, education, practice and service provision" (Luchenski et al., 2017).
