This course is designed for qualified Registered Midwives who are out-of-practice and wish to refresh their knowledge and skills in an acute maternity care setting. It is ideal for midwives who have taken an extended break from midwifery but still meet the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia mandatory registration standards of Recency of Practice and Continuing Professional Development.
Participants will learn contemporary best-practice and renew their confidence while gaining practical experience at Mater Mothers' Hospital Brisbane.
The course is designed to build on your previous midwifery skills, knowledge and experience to prepare you for safe practice according to the relevant NMBA registered midwife Standards for Practice.
Throughout the course, participants will:
- gain an understanding of contemporary, evidence-based best practice, in the clinical environment.
- have the option to refresh in antenatal, labour and/or postnatal areas dependent on recent experience.
- observe and perform a variety of foundational midwifery skills including medication administration within the maternity setting with the support of preceptors, clinical support educators and midwife educators.
- receive regular feedback and support from educators and facilitators, and have the opportunity to be individually assessed.
