Welcome to the Irish Diabetes Nurse and Midwife Specialist Association (IDNMSA) website

The aim of this site is to promote the exchange of information and knowledge among nurses working in diabetes care.

The site also provides links to a variety of diabetes related sites. A discussion forum and useful educational resources are available on the members only page.

Contributions from Diabetes Nurses, Midwives and those interested in the speciality are welcomed.

About Us

The Irish Diabetes Nurse and Midwife Specialist Association was formed in the mid 1980s by a small group of dedicated diabetes nurse specialists. They identified the need to provide a forum for specialist nurses and midwives involved in the long term care of diabetes patients. It has grown in numbers over the years with almost one hundred and seventy nurses or midwives on the current register.
