Midwives must have undertaken 35 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) relevant to their scope of practice as a midwife in the 3 year period since their registration was last renewed, or since they joined the register.
Of those 35 hours of CPD, at least 20 must have included participatory learning. To meet the participatory learning requirement, you simply have to undertake activity that involves interaction with one or more other professionals – this can be in a physical environment or a virtual one – you don’t have to be in the same room as the people you undertake the activity with.
Our Maternity & Midwifery Festivals offer both options! You can attend in person or watch the live stream of the festival and gain around 8 hours participatory learning with a certificate of attendance. You also get a video box set of all of the presentations made at the event so you can catch up on any speakers you missed.
