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 role supports staff through a continuous improvement process that aims to build personal and professional resilience, enhance quality of care and support preparedness for professional revalidation. To undertake the role, a midwife must successfully complete a PMA preparation programme (bridging module/shortened or long programme).

The programme is aimed at those midwives who have been nominated by the provider Trusts to become PMAs and who have not previously undertaken the Preparation of Supervisors of Midwives programme.
