Description: In order to maximize engagement in “The Year of the Nurse and the Midwife”, Yale School of Nursing designed a new collaborative online course: Global Quality Maternal and Newborn Care. The aim is to disseminate the midwifery model of care and the evidence supporting its implementation in order to reduce maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality. The curriculum is built around the Quality Maternal and Newborn Care Framework developed initially in the 2014 Lancet Series on Midwifery. Designed for policy makers, administrators, clinicians, consumers, and activists around the world, the course includes practical advocacy and action plans to achieve health care quality and outcomes globally in the care of mothers and babies. It includes advice and perspectives from experts in the field, along with current research and high-quality care maternal and newborn care. It is accessible through the Coursera learning platform and offers learners both certificate and non-certificate options.
