An introduction to culture, race and bias in midwifery care. Module 2

About this course

Topic Overview

Successive annual MBRACCE reports have identified disproportionate morbidity and mortality rates amongst Black, Asian and ethnically diverse women in the UK. In response to these ongoing maternal health inequalities, All4Maternity has commissioned a committee of women representative of this beneficiary group to develop two e-learning modules that promote understanding of how to improve maternity care for women and families from marginalised ethnic communities. These modules are solution-focussed and designed to support learners to explore strategies they can use to improve the pregnancy outcomes of Black, Asian and ethnically diverse women and families. We recommend that you complete both anti-racism modules to maximise your learning. We also strongly advise you to keep a reflective journal throughout the duration of each module, to support your learning and help you keep track of where you are in your individual learning journey - there will be a gentle reminder to complete your reflective journal at the end of each section.

Learning aims and objectives

This module introduces key anti-racism concepts and invites learners to begin thinking about how they can respond to systemic racism within maternity services. This module will enable you to:

  • Become aware of key terms related to systemic racism and anti-racism
  • Develop an understanding of cultural safety and how it can be applied to healthcare settings
  • Become aware of advocacy and allyship and how to work towards these principles
  • Develop an understanding of the experiences of marginalised communities when accessing care
  • Learn about strategies to challenge discriminatory practice and decolonise clinical policies and guidelines
