The first UKMidSS Study Day took place in Birmingham on 10th November 2016. Open to all UKMidSS reporters and nominated others from UKMidSS participating units, the day was free to attend and RCM Accredited.
As well as hearing interim results from the Severe Obesity Study, we heard about next year's UKMidSS study, networked and shared experiences with UKMidSS reporters and the UKMidSS team. We also had a lively session on developing ideas for future UKMidSS studies and heard from four invited speakers who talked about:
An intervention to support midwives in choice of place of birth discussions with women (Dr Beck Taylor)
'Outwith guidelines' care planning and delivery (Julie Frohlich)
The Morecambe Bay Investigation: learning from others (Dr Bill Kirkup CBE)
The Midwifery Unit Network (Dr Lucia Rocca-Ihenacho)
