Episode 50 - The state of the Midwifery workforce

In this episode, Mel and B invited Lynnelle Moran (Midwifery Lecturer) and Alison Weatherstone (Chief Midwife at the Australian College of Midwives) to discuss the current state of the midwifery work force in Australia and internationally. It was inspired by Lynnelles’ new publication entitled 'What is known about midwives' wellbeing and resilience? An integrative review of the international literature'. You can get access to the full article by joining our mailing list.
