MetadataShow full item record
This study assessed midwives knowledge, skills and attitudes to maternity high-dependency care both before and after attendance at a hospital-based maternity high-dependency course. A mixed methodology design involved pre and post course knowledge testing, assessment of confidence and focus group interviews. Pearsons’s chi-square analysis indicated a statistically significant improvement in midwifery knowledge (p = < 0.001), skills (p = 0.005), and confidence (p = < 0.004) 12 months after course completion. Thematic analysis of the focus group interview transcripts revealed three core themes that influenced confidence in clinical practice.
