Cultural Competency & Global Midwifery Skills Seminar

Friday, March 1, 2013 - Saturday, March 2, 2013

Midwives, doulas, doctors, nurses, or any healthcare workers who work in maternity care anywhere in the world will benefit from this seminar.

The needs of women in the area of culturally sensitive and evidence-based care is actually a life and death matter; women of color die in childbirth and lose their babies at birth at rates much higher than white women, everywhere in the world. Teaching is based on World Health Organization and United Nations Millennial Goals for reducing infant mortality and maternal mortality globally. Topics will include updated treatments and preventions for malaria, parasites, neonatal tetanus and hypothermia, HIV/AIDS, and more. Hands-on practice in non-inflatable anti-shock garment and other new life-saving innovative technologies.
