Dilemmas and Decisions in Midwifery: A practice based approach

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Linked to the NMC Standards for Midwifery, this book is essential reading for midwifery students and practising midwives, and is also relevant for midwives supporting students, coordinating care teams, and those supporting multi-cultural communities. It is written and edited by experts in the field, and provides a range of clinical scenarios which illustrate examples of complex dilemmas relevant to contemporary UK practice. As each scenario unfolds the relevant underpinning theories are highlighted and explored through reflective questions.
The annotated, thinking-aloud framework enables you to unpack the elements of dilemmas and develop a clear and systematic approach to decision making. You have the opportunity to explore professional dilemmas you might not have witnessed and uncover new theories that will help in any future decision-making in your practice.
