Midwifing the Midwife: Key Elements to Scaling Up and Sustaining our Workforce

In celebration of International Day of the Midwife 2024, GOLD Learning is excited to welcome Midwife Ginger Breedlove as she shares her new presentation titled "Midwifing the Midwife: Key Elements to Scaling Up and Sustaining our Workforce". Dr. Breedlove is a past president of the American College of Nurse-Midwives and has led many national initiatives to address and improve perinatal health in the United States. She is a widely published author in numerous journals and publications, national speaker, and has received over $5 million dollars as principal investigator in grant funded projects related to healthcare for women. In 2017 she co-founded March for Moms with Dr. Neel Shah and serves as President.

Barriers to accessible, affordable and respectful midwifery practice exist in every country. These barriers inevitably reduce the ability for midwives to provide their full scope of care and can impact the scaling up or sustainability of the workforce. If you've ever felt frustration about this or wondered "What can I do?", then this presentation is for you! Dr. Breedlove will be guiding midwives to critically evaluate the process of self-preparedness in order to scale up and sustain the profession. Practical suggestions will be provided to "midwife the midwife" beyond clinical expertise toward a voice and champion for change. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to expand your knowledge live on May 1st, 2024!

This presentation is approved for 1 ACM CPD Hour, 1 ACNM CEU and has applied for 0.1 MEAC Midwifery CEU (equivalent to 1 NARM CEU).

Abstract:

Barriers to accessible, affordable and respectful midwifery practice exist in every country. These barriers inevitably reduce the ability for midwives to provide their full scope of care and can impact the scaling up or sustainability of the workforce. Barriers range from pay inequity to lack of recognition, to regulatory practice barriers and poor reimbursement for services. Regardless of the contributing barrier, there are fundamental steps that can be strategically planned to advance change. Although midwives may lead the call for change, purposeful planning is the focus of this presentation. Have you documented a current, compelling story about why – what is the issue and why is it important? What barriers are the most pressing, and, what can you bring forward as a proposed solution? Who are your supporters on the side that perhaps should be promoted as front and center advocates? Do you know how to organize an effective public advocacy movement? Are you skilled in the art of negotiation – getting everyone to YES? This presentation aims to guide midwives to critically evaluate the process of self-preparedness in order to scale up and sustain the profession. Information to "midwife the midwife" beyond clinical expertise toward a voice and champion for change.
