Building Nursing and Midwifery capacity to maintain continuity of care for Aboriginal families and children accessing mainstream health services in the first 1000 days

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

We know that in Australia and internationally the most successful models of midwifery care for Indigenous women are those that provide continuity (see for example Kildea 2016 & Corconan et al 2017). There is however no research exploring the continuity of care provision by midwives and nurses with Aboriginal families transitioning from antenatal through to child and family health care across the entirety of first 1000 days. Further, there is little evidence marking the contribution made by AMIC workers and ACC’s to the health care team.
