Ministry of Health Learning

SUDI: http://learnonline.health.nz/course/info.php?id=56

Across NZ health professional groups, there is a good level of understanding of the major SUDI risks (e.g. smoking / safe sleeping) but knowledge and understanding of all of current known risks is not consistent due to changing evidence and policy. Therefore, the aim of this programme is to build on pre-existing knowledge but work towards correcting misconceptions and to reinforce current evidence-based guidance.  Raising health professional knowledge levels of SUDI is vital towards supporting families better understanding that it can be prevented.

The resource has four specific modules which include describing: what SUDI is; the specific vulnerability factors, how to engage effectively with Maori and Pacific Peoples on this health concern; and what prevention models can be applied.

The benefits of the resources are it: is relevant to well child health services and related health workforce practice; it is accessible and can be completed by health professionals in their own time; can improve your engagement with Mâori and Pacific peoples, and you can gain a certificate on completion.

BREASTFEEDING: https://learnonline.health.nz/course/category.php?id=85 

New Zealand is a signatory to the World Health Organization International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes (WHO Code). The WHO Code aims for safe and adequate nutrition for infants by protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding, and ensuring proper use of breast-milk substitutes (infant formula), when they are necessary.

The Ministry of Health is responsible for implementing and monitoring New Zealand’s interpretation of the WHO Code. It does so under two self-regulatory codes of practice, the:

  •  Code of Practice for Health Workers (Health Workers’ Code) (Ministry of Health, 2007)
  • Infant Nutrition Council (INC) Code of Practice for the Marketing of Infant Formula in New Zealand (INC Code of Practice) (2007)

Perinatal Learning Package

Midwifery Council Self-directed Learning Package on the Prescription of Controlled Drugs

ADHB Women's Health has a new guideline: "Opioid Analgesia for Women in Labour". This guideline is central to ADHBs move towards mandating the use of morphine as an alternative to pethidine for women in labour. 

Midwives qualifying in New Zealand from 2014 onwards will have had adequate education on opioid prescribing in labour included in their undergraduate training. For the past few years the Midwifery Council has supplied (and promoted) a self-directed learning package to supplement the pharmacology teaching that was included on the Midwifery Practice Day (compulsory education 2014-2017) for those midwives qualifying prior to 2014. From April 2018 however (subsequent to good uptake of this education), the Council decided that it was not longer necessary to offer and administrate this education package, instead allowing Midwifery Educators within DHBs to continue to utilise it as they wished.

ADHB recognises that whilst many midwives will be familiar and confident with prescribing intravenous pethidine, they may require further education to gain competence and confidence with morphine prescribing. Auckland DHB therefore strongly recommends that both core midwives and independent LMC access holders wishing to prescribe IV morphine in labour should complete the Council learning package.

The self-directed learning package is available on the link below.

Prescribing of controlled drugs learning package November 2017_.pdf

Once completed, the assessment section should be forwarded to ADHB midwifery educators, who will mark the paper, provide a certificate and maintain a local database of completion. Your paper can be posted, scanned and emailed to (midwiferyeducation@adhb.govt.nz) or left in the Midwifery Educators' office in Ward 96, ACH.

Council does still wish to be informed of any midwives completing the package and therefore names will be forwarded.
