Rural maternity care redesign: improving access and equity for rural women in their own communities. Presented by Fiona Faulks

Fiona Faulks has been a midwife for over 25 years and has worked in metropolitan, regional and rural services in both Victoria and New South Wales. She has experience in clinical education, senior management and now tertiary education of midwives in regional Victoria. Fiona is currently working on her PhD exploring maternal and neonatal outcomes for vulnerable and disadvantaged women in Victoria between 1999-2016 with a view to explore midwifery interventions that may improve outcomes for this important group. Fiona also works as a midwifery consultant with a special interest in rural models of care and transformative approaches to maintaining rural maternity services. Fiona believes strongly that rural women (particularly low risk rural women) should have access to maternity care close to home without any fragmentation or disadvantage occurring due to geographical location. To enable this, Fiona supports a ‘whole of system approach’ to enabling and supporting the provision of rural maternity care.
