A question for midwives. What do you need to meet your professional learning needs?

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about midwives' professional learning needs....what they are....what impacts on them....who or what dictates what the learning needs are. And what do midwives need to meet those needs?

Obviously there are the statutory and professional requirements that midwives have to meet, as well as the local expectations of employers.  There's the requirements around meeting women's needs and practicing evidence-based midwifery. And then there's the formal education requirements of courses that midwives undertake.

So much to think about....

What do you need, as a midwife, to meet those professional learning needs? How are your needs being met now...and what would you like to have in place in the future?
