This course is designed for midwives to make a contribution to the midwifery discipline. Midwives will increase their midwifery leadership skills by acting as role models for their peers and students. Midwives will understand the importance of developing and maintaining a public health profile within the midwifery discipline and extend their skills in consultative and collaborative practice. Midwives will explore the significance of creating and maintaining a positive workplace culture to ensure zero tolerance of xenophobia, discrimination and horizontal violence. Midwives will gain an understanding of human rights regarding asylum seekers and refugees and women’s rights in childbearing. The importance of evidence based practice and research contributes further to the midwifery discipline and midwives’ professional development.
