President's Bulletin Board and Blog

Hello Midwives...Happy Spring!

Recent Affiliate Happenings:

The Affiliate participated in the Annual NJ Student Nurses Convention in Atlantic City, our Affiliate display was so popular that we ran out of handouts! I also presented to the student nurses: "What's Old is New Again - Midwifery as a Career Option for Today's Studnet Nurse". It was very well received.

The Affiliate has joined AWHONN and ACOG in the national AIM Initiative - Alliance for Innovation of Maternal Health. AIM alligns national, state and hospital level efforts to improve maternal health and saftey, in response to  increasing maternal mortality and morbidity rates. You can go to their website:www.safehealthcareforeverywoman.org/aim  and sign up for their e-modules: MEWS (Maternal Early Warning System), Obstetric Hemmorhage, Safe Reduction of Promary Cesarean Section, Severe Hypertension and Preventing VTE. Other modules on PP Depression and Disparities are also available. New Jersey will focus on Obstetric Hemmorhage (building on the AWHONN PPH project) and HTN. Be aware of efforts which may be starting in your hospital around this initiative.

 

Our  Three Year Strategic Plan  can be found in the Affiliate documents section. In summary:

Vision: A Midwife for Every Woman

Strategic Goals: 1)  Strengthen New Jersey Affiliate

                      2)  Support Visibility of Midwifery in New Jersey
