Midwifery Emergency Skills Program (MESP)

MESP is a risk management program for midwifery care that is accessible & flexible, and focuses on homebirth, communication & teamwork. It is designed by and for Canadian midwives to build upon previously developed skills in midwifery management in obstetrical emergencies. Other health professionals may also participate in MESP. MESP is comprised of asynchronous online learning modules and community-based workshops, making it a program responsive to the needs of both urban and rural midwives. Each module will provide learning objectives, evidence based practice recommendations and knowledge transfer assessment tools (exams). The time investment per module varies between 15-45 minutes. Modules include a variety of critical learning components, including undiagnosed twins or breech birth, shoulder dystocia, antepartum and postpartum haemorrhage, anaphylaxis and cord presentation and prolapse.
