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.
