This distance learning course is aimed at registered midwives working in clinical leadership roles in intrapartum areas, such as as Labour Ward or MLBU Coordinators.
Through distance learning and taught by a variety of experts in healthcare leadership, you'll develop your knowledge and skills in leadership, and become empowered to inspire, motivate and encourage their teams to deliver care that is safe and personalised.
By advancing your reflective practice, you'll develop your roles as advocate, role model and leader, while keeping service users at the forefront of your care.
This course may also be suited to those aspiring to become intrapartum area leads but are currently in development posts, or who are currently ward managers of other maternity services.
Numerous reports into maternity services have highlighted the need for improved multi-disciplinary team (MDT) collaborative working and training, strengthened leadership and an improved workplace culture. This is particularly important in the intrapartum areas, where balancing workloads and cohesive MDT relations are crucial for delivering safer care and fostering effective teamwork.
As a senior midwife working in the UK, this course will empower you to become an excellent intrapartum area leader and get the absolute best from your teams by expanding your knowledge of compassionate leadership, developing a supportive workplace culture and role modelling professional behaviours that are consistent with positive team working.
By putting service users at the forefront of care, you’ll develop your understanding of effective engagement with service users, carers and families and explore how you can use this to ensure care is both personalised and safe.
Taught via distance learning you’ll enjoy highly interactive and engaging teaching, supported by experts along the way. You'll study through Canvas, our world-class online Learning Management System (LMS), which can be accessed from your phone, PC or tablet at home or on the move.
You’ll also participate in live lectures and group work delivered remotely via MS Teams. Canvas provides instant access to study materials, forums, and support from both your tutors and classmates.
