Midwifery Educator core competencies
The midwifery core competencies if appropriately used can contribute to the improvement of the quality of midwifery education and services. Eight domains have been identified. There are: Ethical and legal principles of midwifery, Midwifery practice, Theoretical learning, Learning in the clinical area, Assessment and evaluation of students and programmes, Organization, management and leadership, Communication, leadership and advocacy and Research. These core competencies can be used to develop innovative curriculum contents and teaching approaches, with strong effective links between theory and midwifery practice.
