Programme Rationale:

The rationale and justification for this Breast Feeding Refresher Programme in support of the 10 steps to successful breastfeeding, is to provide an update for healthcare professionals on basic breastfeeding information, breastfeeding support and management of complications that may arise.

Programme Philosophy:

In the Centre for Midwifery Education we commit to an andragogical approach to learning in which proactivity, enquiry and autonomy feature predominantly (Quinn 2013). As a result we acknowledge that programme participants are adult learners with existing knowledge and a wealth of experience and therefore utilise teaching strategies that encourage reflection dialogue and debate.

Value is placed on the experience, expertise and ability of programme facilitators to impart evidence based knowledge in relation to breast feeding.

Having completed a 20hour Breast Feeding Programme this Refresher Programmes aims to provide an update in the basic foundations in breastfeeding management to health professionals who have contact with pregnant women and their new born infants.

16 January Jan

Programme Rationale:

The monitoring of the fetal heart rate (FHR) in labour aims to identify hypoxia before it is sufficient to lead to long-term poor neurological outcome for babies. In Ireland the NMBI states that each midwife has a responsibility to develop and maintain on-going competence to provide safe and effective midwifery care by maintaining regular updates in fetal monitoring including cardiotocograph trace interpretation (An Bord Altranais 2010).

Programme Philosophy:

In the Centre for Midwifery Education we commit to an andragogical approach to learning in which proactivity, enquiry and autonomy feature predominantly (Quinn 2013). As a result we acknowledge that programme participants are adult learners with existing knowledge and a wealth of experience and therefore utilise teaching strategies that encourage reflection dialogue and debate.

Value is placed on the experience, expertise and ability of programme facilitators to impart evidence based knowledge.

Programme Aim:

The aim of this programme is to provide attendees with up to date evidence on fetal heart rate monitoring.

Learning Outcomes:

On completion of this programme it is anticipated that attendees will be able to:

Critically discuss continuous versus intermittent fetal heart monitoring

Identify the features of a cardiotocograph (CTG)

Use the correct terminology to classify cardiotocograph

Demonstrate an understanding of acid base balance

Adhere to best practice when documenting CTGs

Indicative Content

K2 Intrapartum Cardiotocography and Acid Base and Fetal Physiology on-line training

Current evidence of continuous versus intermittent FH monitoring

Features and classification of cardiotocograph

Fetal physiology and acid base balance

Documentation and CTG.

This programme is based on the current IOG/HSE Clinical Practice Guideline No. 6. Version 1.2. 2012 Intrapartum Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring. ( This Guideline references the NICE Clinical Guideline 55, Intrapatum Care 2007). https://www.google.ie/search?q=IOG/HSE&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=GsB8V4H7OIfCgAaz7p6gAg#

Centre for Midwifery Education

Programme Rationale:

Despite important advances in prevention, cardiac arrest remains substantial public health problem and a leading cause of death in many parts of the world. Healthcare providers need to know how to perform CPR in a wide variety of in and out of hospital settings. This course is based on the 2010 American Heart Association’s (AHA) guidelines for CPR and ECC for Healthcare providers. The changes from the A-B-C SEQUENCE to the C-A-B SEQUENCE, and the rationale behind it, is explained in detail while providing the maximum time for each participant to gain the skills of resuscitation.

Programme Philosophy:

In the Centre for Midwifery Education we commit to an andragogical approach to learning in which proactivity, enquiry and autonomy feature predominantly (Quinn 2013). As a result we acknowledge that programme participants are adult learners with existing knowledge and a wealth of experience and therefore utilise teaching strategies that encourage reflection dialogue and debate. Value is placed on the experience, expertise and ability of programme facilitators to impart evidence based knowledge and skills.
