Midwifery Initiated Oral Health
The Midwifery Initiated Oral Health (MIOH) e-learning course has been designed to provide qualified midwives with the necessary skills for assessing and initiating oral health care for women during pregnancy and postnatal.
This course was prepared by the Centre for Oral Health Outcomes & Research Translation in collaboration with Centre for Applied Nursing Research, Sydney & South Western Sydney Local Health Districts, Sydney Dental Hospital, Western Sydney University and the Australian College of Midwives (ACM). It is supported by the NSW Centre for Oral Health Strategy.
By completing this e-learning course, midwives will have the opportunity to:
- expand their knowledge of oral health in women during pregnancy and postnatal;
- develop confidence in their clinical practice in the field of oral health and associated care requirements; and
- provide evidence to their colleagues that they are professionally capable to initiate oral health care plans for women.
Course Access: All users are provided with 12 months access from the date of their enrolment.
CPD Hours: This course has been recognised by the ACM for 8 CPD hours, which is equivalent to the average time taken to complete the course by users during the testing period.
