Integrating Research into Midwifery Communities: Evidence-informed Practice in Action

Applying an evidence-informed practice (EIP) framework is critical for optimizing care outcomes and integrating research into midwifery care. An EIP framework rests at the triad intersection between the best available research, the midwife’s professional expertise, and the client’s individual values and needs. As the final session in the workshop series, “Evidence-informed Practice: A Primer for Midwives”, this third session introduces midwives to the next level of EIP: integrating research into our collective efforts as a profession. The purpose of this session is to equip midwives with practical strategies for integrating research into their midwifery communities and to moving EIP into action on professional realms. Strategies to be taught include: integrating research into the peer review structure; clinical research roundtables; creating/participating in EIP journal clubs; using research to advance interprofessional collaboration; using research and a shared decision-making framework into regulatory rule making; and EIP considerations for advancing community health equity. Upon completion of this session, participants will be equipped with a foundational toolkit for using scientific evidence to inform midwifery excellence on community and professional realms.

Research Literacy & Community Birth: Applying Evidence-informed Practice during Clinical Care

Integrating research into care for community midwives is best accomplished through an evidence-informed practice (EIP) framework. EIP rests at the triad intersection of the best available research, the midwife’s professional expertise, and the client’s individual needs and values. Building on the foundations of EIP laid in session one of the workshop series, in this second session, midwives will discover pragmatic strategies for integrating research into clinical practice flow in community birth settings. The purpose of this session is to equip community midwives with the tools and skills necessary for moving from “research in theory” to “research in the real world”. With an emphasis on practicality and models for the busy midwife, we will cover: preparing your practice for EIP integration; the research-practice work flow; point-of-care tools; CATs (critically appraised topics); academic program and community partnerships; social and cultural considerations in EIP; and the role of students/apprentices during EIP integration. Collectively, strategies taught will “come alive” as participants reflect on designing their own approach to EIP in clinical care, accounting for their unique practice model, clientele, and community birth settings.

Why Not Home - The Surprising Birth Choices of Doctors and Nurses

Have you ever wondered about home birth? What drives some families to pursue it, often at great personal expense and social risk? Mention home birth to a stranger on the street and you’ll likely get a reaction. In a time when we have more access to technology and healthcare than ever before, maternal mortality rates are rising. So too are C-section rates. At the same time there is a growing push by some to avoid the hospital altogether. Is this a misdirected are rising in the US as maternal mortality reaches Why would doctors who attend birth in hospitals choose to have their own babies at home? Join Jessica Moore, filmmaker and nurse practitioner, on a compelling journey through maternity care in the United States. Told through the lens of doctors, nurses, and midwives, Why Not Home? examines the latest evidence on risks and rewards of different birth settings. The film presents a balanced and accessible view on the latest research, along with moving personal stories of medical practitioners faced with big decisions for their own growing families. Viewers are challenged to move beyond preconceived ideas, and to envision a fresh future for maternity care in America.

NARM/ MANA DoR - Evidence-informed Practice: A Primer for Midwives

This three-part workshop introduces midwives to the evidence-informed practice (EIP) framework: what it is, why it's important, and how to make it work for you! By examining evidence-informed practice at practice, community, and professional levels, midwives will be equipped with the tools, skills, and knowledge necessary to integrate evidence-informed practice into midwifery care, leveraging shared decision-making and optimizing care for childbearing families.

The three workshops can be taken stand alone or, for the greatest impact, as a series, where one builds upon another! Each session is only one hour, prepared especially for you as busy midwives on the go! The first session in the series is "Evidence-informed Practice 101: The Foundational Framework". This session is all about laying the groundwork for evidence-informed practice, focusing on the EIP cycle and how to use it for client-level care. The second session is "Research Literacy & Community Birth: Applying Evidence-informed Practice during Clinical Care. This session is all about pragmatic strategies for integrating research into clinical practice flow in community birth settings. The third session is "Integrating Research into Midwifery Community: Evidence-informed Practice in Action". This final session is all about the next level of EIP, that is: practical strategies for using research on community and professional levels to advance midwifery excellence.

The workshop series is jointly sponsored by the MANA Division of Research and the North American Registry of Midwives. Earn continuing education credits while advancing your research savvy from the comfort of your own home, on your own time! Don't delay – register today!

Evidence-Informed Practice 101: The Foundational Framework

Evidence-informed practice is increasingly championed as a central framework in the health professions for facilitating shared-decision making, informed choice, and client-centered care. Also called "evidence-based practice" or "evidence-based care", an evidence-informed practice (EIP) framework rests at the triad intersection between the best available research, the midwife's clinical experience, and the client's individual needs, values, and context. In this session, we will explore the EIP cycle (Assess-Ask-Acquire-Appraise-Apply) using current midwifery clinical topics. Specifically, we will cover: developing comprehensive case studies; asking a foreground clinical question; developing a valid PICO; literature search techniques, sources, and key concepts; critical appraisal of published research; and holistic application of research to care. By the end of the session, participants will have the confidence, skills, and resources necessary to enact research fluency during midwifery service using the evidence-informed practice framework.

The Milk Sharing Conundrum - The Grey Area Between Scope and Need

All human babies have the right to breastmilk exclusivity. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways - breastfeeding, expressed breastmilk via a feeding device, or pasteurized donor human milk. Recently there has been much attention placed on the traditional, though professionally frowned upon, practice of informal milk peer to peer milk sharing. The increasing popularity of milk sharing via social media, the growing attention on the importance of breastmilk exclusivity, the increasing awareness of potential dangers of artificial milk, and the inability for donor milk banks to provide donor milk for more than those in critical need has led professionals and families to an impass. Even though some professionals have warned against the practice, its use is becoming more widespread. Finding policy and recommended practices can be difficult. This presentation reviews the current challenges and realities of milk sharing while helping professionals provide best practice recommendations.

This lecture was originally offered at our 2014 GOLD Lactation Conference.

Perinatal Conference 2018

Originally offered in 2018 at our GOLD Perinatal Conference.
The birth of a child is a time of profound transition and adjustment. The care that a family receives during the perinatal period can have a lasting impact on the rest of their lives. Respectful, kind, culturally sensitive and evidence based care results in families who feel valued and empowered as they start the journey of parenthood. This has far reaching implications for the physical and mental health for both parents and child. As care providers during this vulnerable period, it’s important that we have a clear understanding of the potential impact of our practices.
