North American Registry of Midwives (NARM)

North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) supports a health care system where every family in North America has access to skilled and responsible midwives. The individualized attention provided by the CPM in practice is of critical importance to her role as guardian of normal birth, and to the value of her compassionate maternity care. NARM sets standards for competency-based certification that allow a midwife to support a woman’s right to choose her birth attendants and place of birth and to involve those she identifies as her family in the birth experience. CPMs practice as autonomous health professionals working within a network of relationships with other maternity care professionals who can provide consultation and collaboration when needed.

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.

NARM Preceptor Webinar

A NARM Registered Preceptor is a credentialed, experienced midwife who agrees to train apprentice midwives intending to apply for the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) credential and has current, approved registration through NARM. When entering into a preceptor/student partnership, each party is expected to act in a professional, responsible, and respectful manner towards the other. This webinar provides guidance on how to become a Registered NARM Preceptor, an overview of student and preceptor responsibilities, a review of the NARM Application process and documentation of clinical skills, and an exploration of the ethical considerations for the preceptor/student relationship.

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.

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.
