Emma ready to teach
Tuesday, 7th January, 2014
A local midwife has taken on the position of Midwifery Clinical Educator at the Broken Hill Hospital.
“My role is to help and guide student midwives,” said Emma Howard.
“I will also be responsible for the education of staff and students. Hopefully, I can provide support for staff and students.”
Ms Howard said she will provide information on post natal and antenatal care.
“I was a midwifery student in Albury-Wodonga and having an educator made my experience a lot easier,” she said.
Ms Howard will also provide support in the midwifery unit.
“We will be getting a lot of transition-to-practice students in February so I will be providing support for them.
“I will also help out in the ward. I will provide education for mothers and babies but they will be seen, predominantly, by the community midwife.”
She will keep staff up-to-date with new practices and procedures.
This is a long-term role for Ms Howard.
“I’ve been a midwife for three and a half years, I’ve worked in Broken Hill for two years.
“I can see myself doing this role for many years to come.”
