Event description

Description

Midwives act as leaders and often explore ways to improve the care of women and families. Our workshops focus on enhancing the midwife’s ability to confidently apply clinical and leadership skills when caring for women during childbirth, and throughout midwifery practice.

Knot-tying and Suturing: The knot-tying and suturing workshop includes technical aspects of knot-tying, needles and suture, handling of suturing instruments, and mentored hands-on simulation of suturing techniques for the birth room or the OR using suture and foam models. The goal of the session is expanded understanding of sutures, needles, and the associated techniques when performing wound repair.

The Midwife as Surgical First Assistant at Cesarean: The surgical first assistant workshop addresses prevention of the primary cesarean, the woman’s preoperative preparation and informed consent, family-centered cesarean, functioning as an active member of the perioperative team, surgical skills, tissue dissection, closures, complications, and care of the woman after surgery. Mentored hands-on simulation builds surgical skills and comprehension through performance of cesarean using fabric models. The goal of the session is development of the understanding and skill set necessary to expand midwifery practice and act as the first assistant at cesarean.

The Art of Perineal Support & Repair: The perineal support and repair workshop includes relevant anatomy, techniques and skills used to maintain tissue integrity, appropriate assessment before and after birth, techniques and skills used to maintain aseptic technique and perform repair, and mentored hands-on simulation of specific closures using tissue models. The goal of the session is expanded understanding of the components of perineal evaluation and repair during childbirth, and development of new hand-skills to perform this important aspect of quality midwifery care.

Following the workshop an optional 3-hour mentored simulation experience is available for those who want more hands-on and discussion for an additional $25 (paid on-site).
