Description: Training midwives in leadership, management, and governance (L+M+G) has been identified as a key intervention by the Lancet and the World Health Organization to ensure effective provision of maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) services worldwide. UNFPA (State of the World’s Midwifery, UNFPA, 2014) recommends the employment of 112,000 midwives in 38 developing countries and questions curriculum that teach only clinical skills. Studies conducted by Australian College of Nursing (ACN) have also established that strong Nursing and Midwifery leadership leads to better workplace environments, better staff retention, and patient health outcomes in general. During this presentation it will be discussed the potential of the Leadership, Management and Governance for Midwifery Managers certificate (Developed by the USAID-funded LMG Project) to provide midwifery managers with L+M+G skills to address challenges and improve MNCH outcomes.
