Informing and Consenting
Informed Consent is the mainstain of the woman centred partnership.
How do we know, and how do we show, that we have had those conversations, and that women have made decisions from an informed place?
Do women even have to be informed - if they choose not too?
Can women choose not to be informed?
How does this affect midwives?
How does Informed Consent work "in the heat of the moment"?
How OK is some of the consent that is given - is it truly informed?
And what can we do about it?
This course will investigate the tenants of Informed Consent and the reality of practice.
Hopefully the above description was informative enough for you to decide to join!
Welcome to Simply Midwifery and Healthcare Professional Education and Development.
These online professional education and development courses are designed with you in mind.
As a nurse then midwife of 29 years (2020) I know what it is like to keep up and keep progressing year after year. We want to learn the latest information, revisit that which we know, but sometimes life takes over and where do we find the time?
That is why these online courses have been designed to bridge the gap between the wanting to do and the doing.
Relevant, relatable, timely and full of thought provoking practice issues, my hope is that "continuing education" and meeting your professional development needs is enjoyable and inspiring.
We keep up to date with what is new or challenging in our professional and practice lives, and aim to provide up to the minute courses that meets varying individual needs.
Got an idea for a course? Something you think we can do with knowing more about? Let us know!
I have practised as a nurse, as a midwife, and spent quite a few years as a clinical educator in undergrad and postgrad education and development here in NZ. Apparently I am pretty good at educating - thanks! :)
I discovered recently that I "lead with blue and yellow" ... meaning I love data, information, getting deep into it, making sense of it, and sharing it (blue), and that I also love to engage with people ALOT! (yellow). And that I also have green when it matters - so I also care - which is good to know ;)
