CranaPlus Midwifery Upskilling Course (MIDUS) in Darwin

The Mid­wifery Upskilling course (MIDUS) aims to pro­vide an overview of cur­rent prac­tice in ante­na­tal, intra­partum and post­na­tal care, includ­ing dis­cus­sion of com­pli­ca­tions in preg­nan­cy and birth, and the emer­gency man­age­ment of a preg­nant woman and her baby, with an empha­sis on care in the remote and iso­lat­ed setting.

The course is designed to meet the learn­ing needs of the mater­ni­ty health work­force (Mid­wives and Med­ical Offi­cers) who may be required to pro­vide mater­ni­ty care in remote and/​or iso­lat­ed areas.

Please note, if you are not a mid­wife or a GP with rel­e­vant obstet­ric expe­ri­ence you are not eli­gi­ble for this course – please con­sid­er the Mater­ni­ty Emer­gency Care course as this may be more rel­e­vant for you.
