Workshops

ACM workshops are designed to enable midwives to engage in CPD activities in a face to face environment where they will access information from highly skilled and qualified practitioners or experts on a range of topics pertinent to midwifery.

Booking a workshop

All workshops are booked and paid on-line via ACM's Event Registration pages and a confirmation email will be generated to confirm your place at the relevant workshop.

All prices are in AUD$ and include goods and services tax (GST). Any pre-reading plus further information regarding the venue will be sent to you via email.

Cancellation:  please refer to the ACM Terms & Conditions for details of the workshop cancellation policy.

 

ACM workshops are typically developed and delivered in response to a request from midwives or the health industry.  A typical workshop will have between 8-40 participants depending on the content to be addressed.  Workshops are generally practical in nature, with an additional theoretical component.

Workshops foster professional development by creating intense collaborative learning environments and networking opportunities.  They are a great way to tap into new content, update existing knowledge or even learn a new skill to add to your midwifery toolkit.
