Meeting of Professional College of Maternal Health & Obstetric Nursing/Midwifery

I attended the first International Meeting of the Professional Specialty College of Maternal Health and Obstetric Nursing/Midwifery between 12th - 13th June in the Auditorium of the University Lusíada, Oporto. 

I was invited by Dr. Vítor Varela, President of the Professional Specialty College of Maternal Health and Obstetrics Nursing/Midwifery of the Ordem dos Enfermeiros (Portuguese Order of Nurses), and former ICM Board Member, to give the keynote speech.

Officials in attendance included Mr Germano Couto Bastanario; Mr Jorge Cadete, President Director Council North Region; and Ms Dolores Sado, President of the Association of Portuguese Obstetric Nurses. 

The title of my talk was ‘Midwifery: Politics and a human rights approach’.  This focused on the themes of politics, regulation, research and rights in midwifery development. 

It was my pleasure to share this important historic day.
