The process of accreditation of midwifery education programs is becoming more complex.  Often program directors and other faculty have not had experience in preparing for the accreditation process.  This workshop is designed to provide up-to-date information on writing the Self-Evaluation Report and preparing for a site visit.  Attendees will actively participate in activities designed to prepare them for a successful accreditation process and annual monitoring during the accreditation period.  Information presented will also be relevant for those planning to start a new education program and preparing for the pre-accreditation process.

Continuing on Your Leadership Journey:  Building on the Basics that you Already Know and Adding New Knowledge to Strengthen your Leadership Skills

Monday, October 28, 2019 | 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (EST)

Presenter: Barbara Hughes, CNM, MS, FACNM

Co-Presenter: Christie Bryant, CNM, MS, FACNM

This workshop is geared toward leaders, both formal and informal, who are looking for the “road map” to success.  We’ll explore the most current research done by Gallup – the leaders in provision of evidence-based information related to effective workplaces.  Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the research and be provided with tools and exercises that can help you improve performance, build an effective culture (or change an ineffective one), and move your team forward.  If you are currently a volunteer leader in ACNM, or considering taking on a volunteer leadership role, this workshop will provide you with a strong foundation.  If you are a new or experienced midwifery leader or have a leadership role in your community, this workshop will enhance your success.
