Will Informit improve your access to midwifery content?

ACM have been offered an opportunity to review two of the RMIT Informit online libraries for suitability for ACM member access.    

We recognise that midwives want to access content that supports their practice and professional learning from a variety of sources and they have a wide range of interest.  Access to the Informit libraries has the potential to increase the variety of content available to midwives. 

We would like your input as to whether you would like to see ACM Members having ongoing access to this repository.

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.
