Advocating and educating for quality improvement (A-EQUIP) is the new model and framework of midwifery supervision.  The Professional Midwifery Advocate is a fundamental leadership and advocacy role designed to deploy the A-EQUIP model.

The aim of this module is to prepare registered midwives who have undertaken the Preparation of Supervisors of Midwives programme (NMC 2014) or equivalent training, to achieve the standards and competencies required to successfully undertake the role of the Professional Midwifery Advocate (PMA).

The programme is designed to recognise the existing knowledge and experience of the participants and will be one of blended learning – an approach which combines and aligns learning undertaken in face to face sessions with online learning opportunities. It is expected that the attendees will be prepared to actively participate in-group discussions, give feedback and support their colleagues.
