Strategy development and leadership

The empowerment of midwives: an important tool to enlarge the professional autonomy. Insights into the theoretical framework of empowerment, strategic management and policy development (national and international) strengthen your position.

Leadership and strategic management and its impact upon midwifery care provides a meaningful contribution to the further development and professionalization of midwifery care. Though there are similarities, the extent of midwives’ professional autonomy varies in different countries, in different work areas, and over time. You actively examine these differences and similarities to assess what can be learned from the different ways that midwives have reached their current positions. Thus it will help you to position yourself powerful in a constantly changing field.
