A Clinical Decision Tool to improve maternal & perinatal outcomes in Australia
Safety and Quality in Maternity Care
Current Australian obstetric care has significant practice variation because healthcare workers have different access levels to the best evidence-based care. An easy-to-use clinical decision support tool will help ensure every Australian woman receives the right care at the right time to improve maternal and perinatal outcomes. In this presentation we will show a world-first CE marked tool developed by the internationally renowned Tommy’s National Centre for Maternity Improvement, UK for risk assessment and prevention of placental dysfunction related outcomes (pre-eclampsia, SGA/FGR, stillbirth) and preterm birth.
Murra Mullangari Program - Cultural Safety and Cultural Humility Educations
Improving Value in Healthcare
Murra Mullangari developed by The Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM) is the first Indigenous-developed Cultural Safety and Humility program for practising nursing and midwifery specifically. The term ‘Cultural’ in Cultural Safety is not about cultural identity, ethnicity or traditions. Rather, it’s about the ‘culture’ of power. The program is one aspect of life-long learning towards achieving Cultural Safety and Cultural Humility in Nursing and Midwifery practice, especially when caring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It also contributes to eliminating racism and addressing inequities in Nursing and Midwifery workforce and in health outcomes. Clinically safe practice is not possible without culturally safe practice.
Castlemaine Health Midwifery Group Practice Program Journey
Midwifery Group Practice
In June 2020 Castlemaine Health’s maternity services were suspended pending a review. This was at a time where many smaller hospitals around the state were closing their maternity services. The community came onboard and threw their support behind the maternity service, which was instrumental in securing support from the local government and SCV. Extensive review and re-modelling of the service was undertaken leading to the development of their MGP model. April Jardine, Midwifery Coordinator and Educator will share Castlemaine's experience and how local women are able to continue birthing in their local community in their midwifery continuity of care model.
