ADHB offers a comprehensive in-house education and training programme. This is designed to support midwives in meeting the Midwifery Council and ADHB mandatory education requirements and also contributes to promotion of local and National quality and safety fundamentals.
The programme aims to foster and enhance midwifery philosophy, clinical skills and wisdom, as well as providing vital learning opportunities for multidisciplinary team-working. The midwifery education team are either solely responsible for or contribute to, the implementation of the various study days and initiatives within the programme.
The educators also have a significant support and advisory role and encourage staff and access holders to contact them with any queries or requests. Midwives on the New Graduate Programme will, in addition, have individually tailored study days/workshops (not published on this website).
Sam has worked clinically at ADHB since 2009, as a core staff midwife on all wards and as a Clinical Charge Midwife on Tamaki ward and then Labour and Birthing Suite. Sam joined the education team in 2017.
