DEPARTMENT OF MIDWIFERY

Vision, aim and philosophy

The vision, mission and philosophy of the programme are described here so that the basis of curriculum decisions is clear. This is also required by the WHO (2009) and ICM (2013 rev.a). Midwives have their own internationally agreed philosophy (ICM 2014 a) and Annexe 5.

Vision

The vision for the initial training Midwifery degree programme is that women will be prepared in such a way that they fulfil the academic requirements to graduate from their universities and the professional requirements of the government and professional associations based on internationally accepted competencies. They will be able to provide comprehensive midwifery care for the Somaliland (and wider) population in whatever environment it is needed, so supporting the health of communities in which they live and work. They will be at the forefront of the development of midwifery as a profession in Somaliland, and of the development of high quality health services.

The vision is also that university-based faculty and clinical staff will respect and trust each other and will recognise and use each other as experts.

Aim

The aim is that graduate midwives will
•    provide safe, competent and timely care to childbearing women and families
•    contribute to the reduction of maternal and infant morbidity and mortality
•    act at all times with honesty, integrity and without discrimination to people whatever their ethnic group, faith, gender, nationality or culture
•    work in collaboration with the community and with professional colleagues
•    become lifelong learners who are able to reflect on and improve their practice and encourage and support others to do the same
•    work towards the advancement of midwifery practice and the profession of midwifery as leaders and change agents.

 

Philosophy

The curriculum is based on the following concepts and assumptions of the childbearing woman
•    A childbearing woman has social, cultural, spiritual, psychological and physical needs that should be respected.
•    A woman has impact on, and is affected by, the socio-cultural, spiritual, psychological and physical environment.
•    A woman has rights of self-determination regarding what happens to her in health, disability and illness regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, culture or socio-economic status.
•    A woman has the right to information and choice to facilitate such self-determination (ICN 2003).
•    A woman takes responsibility for her own well-being and that of her family to whatever extent possible and collaborates in positive ways to meet deficits.
