MIDI6580 Midwifery and Cultural Diversity
School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Newcastle

This course is designed to enable midwives to examine issues related to the maternity services for childbearing women and neonates at an international and local level using social determinants of health and human rights perspectives. This leads into a critical exploration of the political and cultural context of childbearing in Australia for asylum seekers, refugees or immigrants to enable midwives to make informed, high-level judgements about the maternity care provided, women's rights in childbearing and the outcomes for women and neonates. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of international perspectives on indigeneity and culturally safe, sensitive and competent women-centred care when working with childbearing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. Public health advocacy skills are demonstrated in creating and maintaining a positive workplace culture to ensure zero tolerance of xenophobia, violence and discrimination. The course also examines factors regarding the social construction of motherhood and parenthood, the effect of media and implications for midwifery practice.

Post-graduate core course for Masters in Midwifery Studies.  Unit weight 10.

MIDI6520 Contemporary Midwifery
School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Newcastle

This course is designed for midwives to make a contribution demonstrating leadership within the midwifery profession and contemporary maternity services. Midwives will critically examine their role in relation to the provision of primary maternity care and the National Framework for Maternity Services. In doing so, midwives will compare and contrast models of primary maternity care to determine what factors optimise outcomes for the childbearing woman and neonate. Students will undertake development of tool/s applicable to their own facility to measure the outcomes of childbearing women consider important for themselves and their babies. Students will reflect on their individual midwifery practice as a professional strategy to ensure practice is current and evidence informed.

   This is a core post-graduate course for the Masters of Midwifery Studies. Unit weight: 10.

© 2018 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Objectives: This integrative review aimed to synthesize studies that investigated the effects of acupressure on sleep quality, depression, anxiety, and agitation in older people, and to describe the acupressure procedures and techniques applied in the included studies. Methods: A literature search was conducted using electronic databases including CINAHL, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, and MEDLINE. The inclusion criteria for the review were studies examining the effect of acupressure in older people aged 60¿years and above, measured the outcomes for sleep quality, depression, anxiety or agitation, applied body acupressure, and published in English language. The exclusion criteria were studies using auricular acupoints only, and articles published in any language other than English. Methodological quality of studies was assessed using the critical appraised tools developed by the Joanna Briggs Institute. The information about study design, findings, and description of acupressure intervention were extracted, summarized, and synthesized. Results: A total of 255 articles were identified from the search and as well one article from cross-references. From there, a total of 19 studies were included in this review. Nine studies consistently showed positive effects of acupressure on sleep quality, and four studies consistently showed that acupressure reduced depression. The outcomes of acupressure on anxiety and agitation showed inconsistent findings, in which three studies measured anxiety and five studies measured agitation. There was also variation of acupressure techniques applied in the reviewed studies. Conclusion: This review found some emerging evidences that acupressure can be beneficial for older people who suffer from sleep problems and depression. Use of specific acupressure points, with standardized acupressure treatment protocols, may improve sleep quality and possibly psychological wellbeing of older people. Future research with well-designed mixed method studies are required to produce stronger evidence, as well as in-depth understanding of acupressure intervention in aged care context.

© 2018 Elsevier Ltd Complementary and Alternative Medicine/Therapies (CAM) options have increasingly been used by pregnant women, however literature describing midwives¿ views and beliefs towards CAM is sparse. This study aimed to investigate Australian midwives¿ views and beliefs about CAM. Methods: A national survey of Australian College of Midwives midwife members (n = 3552) (UTSHREC 2015000614) included questions on midwives¿ views and support of CAM, and beliefs using a validated CAM Health Belief Questionnaire (CHBQ). Results: The response rate was 16%. Most respondents believed women should have the right to choose CAM (93.3%); and didn't view CAM a threat to public health (91.7%). Nearly half (49.5%) believed that their hospital/service did not have guidelines/procedures on CAM. The CHBQ mean score was 45.43 (SD9.98). Conclusion: Most respondents agreed with the fundamental beliefs of CAM. This study confirms the need for a national CAM policy for midwives; and research on midwives¿ CAM training.

© 2017 Australian College of Midwives Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) have increasingly been used by pregnant women with a steady rise in interest by midwives. Literature describing CAM and self-help options midwives recommend to women experiencing a post-date pregnancy is sparse. This study aimed to investigate if Australian midwives¿ personal CAM use impacts on discussions and recommendations of CAM/Self-help strategies. Methodology/design: A survey of a national midwifery association midwifery members (n = 3,552) was undertaken at a midwifery conference (October 2015) and via e-bulletins (November 2015¿March 2016). The self-administered survey included questions on what self-help and CAM strategies midwives discuss and recommend to women with a post-date pregnancy, midwives¿ confidence levels on discussing or recommending CAM, midwives¿ own personal use of CAM. Findings: A total of 571 registered midwives completed the survey (16%). Demographics (age, years as a midwife, state of residence) reflected Australian midwives and the midwifery association membership. Most respondents discuss (91.2%) and recommend (88.6%) self-help/CAM strategies to women with a post-date pregnancy. The top five CAM recommended were Acupuncture (65.7%), Acupressure (58.1%), Raspberry Leaf (52.5%), Massage (38.9%) and Hypnosis/Calmbirthing/Hypnobirthing (35.7%). Midwives were more likely to discuss strategies if they personally used CAM (p <.001), were younger (p <.001) or had worked less years as midwives (p =.004). Midwives were more likely to recommend strategies if they used CAM in their own pregnancies (p =.001). Conclusion: Midwives¿ personal use of CAM influenced their discussions and recommendations of CAM/self-help strategies to women experiencing a post-date pregnancy. This study has implications for inclusion of CAM in midwifery education curricula.

Research problem: To investigate the impact of conducting structured antenatal psychosocial assessments (SAPSA) on midwives' emotional wellbeing. The SAPSA includes screening and assessment tools for domestic violence, childhood trauma, drug and alcohol use, depression, and vulnerability factors. Participants and methods: Registered midwives who had conducted the SAPSA with women during the first hospital booking visit at two hospitals in NSW. Data was collected by means of focus group interviews. Results: Four sub-themes were identified that directly impacted upon the midwives' emotional wellbeing: cumulative complex disclosures, frustration and stress, lack of support for midwives and unhealthy coping strategies. Discussion and conclusions: There was a cumulative emotional effect with some midwives utilising unhealthy strategies to cope with feelings of frustration, inadequacy and vicarious trauma. Establishment of structured referral pathways for women and supportive systems for midwives is essential prior to implementing the SAPSA. Crown Copyright © 2009.

This single-blind randomised controlled trial explored the differential effects of two different foot reflexology techniques with a period of rest on oedema-relieving effects and symptom relief in healthy pregnant women with foot oedema. Fifty-five women in the third trimester were randomly assigned to one of the three groups: a period of rest, 'relaxing' reflexology techniques or a specific 'lymphatic' reflexology technique for 15 min with pre- and post-therapy ankle and foot circumference measurements and participant questionnaire. There was no statistically significant difference in the circumference measurements between the three groups; however, the lymphatic technique reflexology group mean circumference measurements were all decreased. A significant reduction in the women's symptom mean measurements in all groups (p<0.0001) was apparent. A 'perceived wellbeing' score revealed the lymphatic technique group (p<0.0001) significantly increased their wellbeing the most, followed closely by relaxing techniques (p<0.001) and then the control rest group (p<0.03). Lymphatic reflexology techniques, relaxing reflexology techniques and a period of rest had a non-significant oedema-relieving effect. From the women's viewpoint, lymphatic reflexology was the preferred therapy with significant increase in symptom relief. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The 50 year old tradition of routinely weighing pregnant women, which has been identified as an obsolete practice, is still practiced by many. The antenatal clinic and community midwives, and medical staff from the Division of Obstetrics (Central Coast Area Health Service) as well as pregnant women attending the clinics have been surveyed to identify the impact on implementing evidence based practice (ceasing routine antenatal weighing). Using both quantitative and qualitative methods to provide a rich and detailed picture, the outcomes showed that the importance of weighing decreased for most of pregnant women. Midwives were surprised at the women's' acceptance to the change; and both health professional groups did not feel a loss of overall care. This research suggests that organised and planned change can achieve acceptance of evidence based practice.

Current literature studying pregnant teenagers and their antenatal educational needs has concentrated on subjects such as sex education, nutrition and various teaching methods. What many have neglected to discover are the topics of interest for pregnant teenagers, and if peer discussion groups appeal to them. This article will address these two issues and, furthermore, the preferred time and gestation of a Pregnant Teenagers' Program. A study was conducted, at the Gosford and Wyong Antenatal Clinics of the Central Coast Area Health Service, by voluntary questionnaires to 46 pregnant teenagers attending the clinics, to determine the antenatal educational needs of pregnant teenagers, and if their needs differed from adult pregnant women. © 1995 ACMI.
