ACM provides feedback on the National Digital Health Workforce Education (NDHWE) Roadmap

The ACM is pleased to make a submission to the Australian Digital health Agency  DRAFT National Digital Health Workforce  Education (NDHWE) Roadmap. 

Overall we thought that this was an exceptionally comprehensive and ambitious document that heralds amazing and exciting times ahead for health care in Australia.  We would have liked to have seen midwives engaged in the scoping phase to ensure the unique requirements of maternity care were captured and have recommended that midwives be identified and engaged for any ongoing developments.

Additional information
The Australian College of Midwives (ACM) is the peak professional body for midwives in Australia who are registered with, and regulated by, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). ACM’s position is that women have access to midwifery care during pregnancy, birth and postnatally. We exist to ensure midwives are strong and confident practitioners who can work to their full scope of practice.
