World Health Organisation advisor to guest lecture at Edge Hill University

TO celebrate the International Day of the Midwife on Thursday 5 May, Edge Hill University will host regular Advisor to the World Health Organisation, Professor Tina Dame Lavender to discuss the changing global agendas in relation to maternal health.

Dame Tina Lavender is Professor of Midwifery and Director of the Centre for Global Women's Health at the University of Manchester. She is Co-editor in Chief of the British Journal of Midwifery, Associate Editor of the African Journal of Midwifery and Women's Health, Editor of the Pregnancy and Childbirth Group of the Cochrane Collaboration and on the editorial team of the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Head of Midwifery and Lead Midwife Education, Catherine McEvilly said during her guest lecture, Professor Dame Tina Lavender will discuss the global health agenda with a focus on midwifery. "The International Confederation of Midwives focus for celebrating International Day of the Midwife in 2016 is 'Women and Newborns: The Heart of Midwifery'. At Edge Hill University, the undergraduate midwifery programme enables students to understand the importance of an international focus to ensure women and newborns receive the quality care that they deserve. Professor Lavender's focus will strengthen student midwives' appreciation of the importance of midwifery care on a global basis."

Edge Hill University has a number of students who have participated in elective placements in countries such as Ghana, Tanzania, Canada, America, India, New Zealand and Australia in order to gain an understanding about how midwifery practice and conditions for women differs around the world.

Lesley Briscoe, Lead for Midwifery Research and Enterprise in Midwifery said the International Day is a great opportunity to celebrate the contribution midwives make around the world. "International Day of the Midwife is an annual celebration of midwives achievements and dedication around the world that aims to acknowledge experts in the field, and promote midwifery as a rewarding career. As a leader in her field, it is an honour to host Professor Dame Tina Lavender who will share stories and observations that will inspire the next generation."

Professor Dame Tina Lavender leads a programme of research in midwifery and women's health with her main area of focus being the management of prolonged labour and partogram use. She also holds an honorary contract at St Mary's Hospital, Manchester and a Visiting Professorship at the University of Nairobi.

Dame Tina is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Midwives and European Academy of Nurse Science. Dame Tina also acts as a regular Advisor to the World Health Organisation, particularly in relation to guideline development.
