Improving Competence & Confidence in Providing Care for Mothers & Infants
Postnatal care is best provided in a primary health care setting, where health professionals can detect and manage issues early and minimise potential adverse outcomes. A pilot educational intervention for general practice nurses was conducted in a regional area of Queensland. The general practice nurses who participated in the education intervention were overwhelmingly positive in their evaluation of the program, and identified increased competence and confidence in caring for mothers and infants in the first postnatal year.
