Otras metodologías educativas de aprendizaje para el logro del liderazgo en Obstetricia

Speakers: Devora Pumacahua Aira and Diego Huamani

Facilitators: María Navarro and Deisy Ordinola

La pandemia por covid-19 desenmascaró un sinnúmero de falencias y problemas para lo que en general, no estábamos preparados en el mundo entero. Uno de estos problemas que se evidenció es la continuidad en la formación de nuevos cuadros de profesionales de la salud.
Desde el 2019 la OMS ha visto la necesidad de usar redes sociales que son de uso muy frecuente en especial por los jóvenes y a pesar de que la pandemia a alejado a los estudiantes de los centros de formación, no es un impedimento para continuar estudios. Es por eso por lo que, desde la Escuela profesional de Obstetricia, de la Universidad San Martín de Porres, los jóvenes estudiantes se han involucrado más activamente en su formación utilizando tecnologías digitales y estrategias comunicacionales que les permite empoderarse de su formación y aprender a ser líderes, de líderes consolidados, así como apoyar y alentar desde el ciberespacio a los profesionales que se encuentran en la primera línea de atención.

11. Supporting survivors: Midwifery care for childhood sexual abuse survivors @ Room 2 - BBB
May 5 @ 08:00 – 08:50
11. Supporting survivors: Midwifery care for childhood sexual abuse survivors @ Room 2 - BBB

Speaker: Barbara Montani

Facilitators: Halima Musa Abdul and Dianne Garland

The presentation will focus on midwifery care for survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA). CSA is defined as any act which involves a child for the sexual gratification of another person. Prevalence is difficult to determine because it is substantially under-reported, however an estimated 1 in 20 children in the UK are sexually abused. Therefore, many midwives will care for CSA survivors during their career, sometimes without knowing it. Literature shows that a common theme for many survivors is the need to feel safe and in control during the childbearing experience, as loss of control can trigger flashbacks and dissociation. Midwives should therefore employ universal precautions and practice trauma-informed care, give multiple chances to disclose abuse and be aware of the risk of retraumatisation. Sensitive midwifery practice, spiritual midwifery and advocacy for survivors are key tools midwives can employ to help CSA survivors have a positive, empowering birth experience

14. The importance of anti-racism and decolonisation in midwifery education @ Room 3- BBB

14. The importance of anti-racism and decolonisation in midwifery education @ Room 3- BBB

Speaker: Chelsea Beckford-Procyk

Facilitator: Diane Fox

Description: Last year saw an upsurge in awareness of the system of racism, the Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum globally and more people are having uncomfortable but necessary conversations around race. In the UK Black women and birthing people are 4-5 times more likely to die due to complications during pregnancy and childbirth than their white counterparts. While the National Health Service “acknowledge and regret this disparity” they have no target to end it. We must therefore examine how the education of healthcare professionals can also play a part in dismantling racism in clinical practice. I will discuss the ways in which student midwives, women, birthing people and society as a whole would benefit from the decolonisation of midwifery education and how being actively anti-racist can positively improve practice.

19. US Midwife Student experience in the COVID-19 pandemic @ Room 4, BBB

19. US Midwife Student experience in the COVID-19 pandemic @ Room 4, BBB

Speakers: Cindy Farley and Student Panel – Christy Cannon, Charlei Coffey, Lauren Radney, Raven Fulton, and Anna Dykstra

Facilitator: Lorraine Mockford

The Corona virus pandemic has impacted all aspects of society, including the education of midwives. Clinical sites suspended student placements in the early days of the pandemic, significantly altering clinical progression and delaying graduation for many students. In person classes were cancelled and quickly pivoted to remote learning, leading to rapid curricular adjustments by midwifery faculty. Students also faced personal and professional stresses related to COVID-19 changes, such as children attending school at home, self or family members with job or income loss or alterations, and risk of exposure to the virus to self and loved ones. These changes tended to increase anxiety and obligation outside the classroom that influenced time and energy for learning. Nevertheless, midwifery students persisted toward their goals. Students in the midwifery education program at Georgetown University, US, will describe their experiences at home, and in the classroom and clinical as altered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
