Pre-registration midwifery education: Clinicians in the classroom

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticlepeer-review


According to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC, 2009), pre-registration midwifery programmes of study must be made up of no less than 50% practice and no less than 40% theory. The programme must also include a variety of teaching and learning strategies. Programmes of study are enhanced when midwifery teaching is complemented with input from other experts such as service users, midwives and other members of the multidisciplinary team. This is the first of a series of articles discussing teaching by a range of health
professionals, each of which will include the featured professional’s role and responsibilities, their motivations to teach, the topics they cover and, where appropriate, how this input is evaluated by student midwives.
