Rural:  A-Z of perineal care:
This full day interactive workshop will provide midwives with the opportunity of exploring current evidence to support midwifery practice in relation to perineal care throughout the antenatal, labour and birthing and postnatal periods.  The workshop will also discuss and provide opportunities for midwives to refresh their skills on perineal assessment and perineal repair following birth. The workshop will also focus on the midwives role in supporting women following birth to enhance women’s experiences in the postnatal period

Rural: MESR (Midwifery Emergency Skills Refresher):
This workshop fulfils the requirements for the mandatory full MESR day for recertification requirements for Midwifery Council. It is an opportunity for midwives to refresh their knowledge, have simulated hands on emergency skills practice, along with updates on current evidence to inform practice.

The workshop will also focus on the psychosocial aspects of providing emergency care as part of the midwife’s role in supporting women, people and whānau, with opportunities for midwives to share practice experiences to reflect and help sustain them in practice.

Workshop costs:
The workshops are fully funded through Midwifery Recruitment and Retention so there is no cost to attend. To enable professional discussion places are limited, book early to avoid disappointment.

The New Zealand College of Midwives is approved as a provider of continuing midwifery education by the Midwifery Council.

The College has allocated this workshop 8 hours of continuing midwifery education.
