Education Blog

The Midwifery Musings

The Midwifery Musings are the Education Units blog of sorts. We created them to talk about education related content specific to midwifery. These blog pieces can be found on our News pages, but for those of you who want to see them all in one place, this is the page to come to for the links. Each piece aims to provide you with a summary of an idea, practice or concept about midwifery and then provide you with ideas on how (and where) to access, manage and reflect on your continuous professional development going forwards. There are also links to ACM resources related to the topic (such as webinars, courses, articles and more) and ACM templates to help you record and reflect on your learning.
