Perinatal Learning Package

MIDWIFERY COUNCIL SELF-DIRECTED LEARNING PACKAGE ON THE PRESCRIPTION OF CONTROLLED DRUGS 

Midwives qualifying in New Zealand from 2014 onwards will have met the learning requirements for opioid prescribing.

For midwives who qualified and/or commenced practice in NZ prior to 2014, ADHB recommends completion of a self-directed package designed by NZ Midwifery Council to supplement the curriculum covered on the Midwifery Practice Day (compulsory education 2014-2017).  Any midwife who did not complete a Midwifery Practice Day is required by the Council to complete a minimum of four hours prescribing education, and the self-directed learning package has been recommended to them.

Internationally qualified midwives should seek guidance from the Council as to how to meet their learning requirements.

To access this paper, click on the link below.

Prescribing of controlled drugs learning package November 2017_.pdf

The Council has now allowed DHB’s to distribute and administrate this package themselves, but does wish to be provided with the names of those midwives who complete it.  For ADHB midwives and LMC’s with access agreements, the completed assessment section should be forwarded to ADHB midwifery educators, who will mark the papers and submit the names of those who have completed successfully to Council. 

Your paper can be posted, scanned and emailed (midwiferyeducation@adhb.govt.nz) or left in the Midwifery Educators’ Office in Ward 96, ACH.

Dates:  Friday 24th & Saturday 25th February 2017
