The 14th NZCOM Biennial Conference was held in Auckland, 26 – 28 August 2016.
Birth, Culture and Social Change was the theme of the conference with an emphasis on the past, the present and the future. Midwifery autonomy has been a rollercoaster of challenges and successes. The conference focused on the influences and important challenges for midwives now and going into the future.
We had some exciting speakers – both international and New Zealand experts in their field – in our programme. We also had a range of panels to focusing on current issues and challenges within maternity.
We would like to thank all our speakers for sharing their knowledge and expertise with us at our conference. In addition we would like to thank all the delegates, exhibitors and sponsors for making the conference an exciting and vibrant event.
