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.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the main barriers to using research during clinical care;

2. List the fundamental resources needed for EIP application in midwifery practice;

3. Explain the role students/apprentices play in EIP integration during clinical care;
