The Goal Need for Program

In recent years birthing has increased in Australia. It is inevitable that there are gaps in the knowledge of many midwives in relation to latest research and the emerging issues that face them in the current practice setting. The context in which midwives practice is increasingly complex and making demands on the ever-expanding scope of practice. The link between education and the provision of quality care to mothers and their babies is indisputable. A broad range of education relating to contemporary midwifery practice will assist in closing gaps in knowledge and practice.

Purpose of Program

This conference provides a broad range of education relevant to midwifery practice that will enhance the provision of quality care to mothers and babies.

Your learning outcomes:

Apply evidence-based knowledge about several clinical aspects of midwifery care including breastfeeding which will improve the health and safety of mother and baby

Deliver compassionate care to a woman who has challenges associated with the perinatal experience

Provide midwifery care that is mindful of personal safety for yourself, a mother and her baby
