Posted on: September 16th, 2020 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England, in partnership with Improving Practice in Performance (iPiP), have collaborated to add a new e-learning session to the Midwifery Continuity of Carer programme.

This programme provides participants with an overview of the underpinning policy changes which have informed both the development of Midwifery Continuity of Carer (MCoC) models and proposed changes of midwifery care in England.

The resource has been designed for those undertaking the HEE National Midwifery Continuity of Carer education programme and all who want to understand more about maternity models based around continuity of carer. Those may include midwives, maternity support workers, obstetricians, managers and commissioners.

The new session provides a base level of understanding of Midwifery Continuity of Carer, its policy drivers and evidence base for delivery. This session is a pre-requisite to be completed prior to attending the National Midwifery Continuity of Carer training workshops and masterclasses.

New Midwifery Continuity of Carer programme launched

Posted on: July 10th, 2020 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

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.”
