Midwifery Continuity of Carer

Health Education England (HEE), in partnership with The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and NHS England and NHS Improvement, have collaborated to develop a new, free e-learning programme supporting midwifery professionals.

The Midwifery Continuity of Carer programme has been designed for student midwives, lecturers, managers, practising clinical midwives and maternity support workers in the UK who want to understand more about a maternity model based around continuity of carer. The course provides short, easy to understand summaries of current research evidence on this topic together with brief overviews of the current national maternity policies that recommend continuity of carer.
Commenting on the resource The RCM said: The Royal College of Midwives supports the aim of Midwifery Continuity of Carer as a positive, evidence-based model of midwifery care. Midwives and managers may find these learning resources helpful for planning for future implementation in the post-pandemic period.”

HEE’s Lead Midwife, Sally Ashton May, said: “Our new continuity of carer resource has been developed for the midwifery community to understand more about a maternity model based around continuity of carer. This free online resource, developed in collaboration with the Royal College of Midwives includes interactive resources to bust some myths as well as lessons from service to support learning from earlier successes and challenges.”
