Midwifery Quality & Leadership Programme (QLP)

​                           QLP.png 

The Quality Leadership Programme (QLP) has been developed in conjunction with the New Zealand College of Midwives, District Health Boards and unions (MERAS and NZNO) to provide a national transferrable pathway which recognises, values, rewards and promotes the professional development of core midwives. The maternity leadership team at CDHB supports and encourages core midwives to apply for Quality Leadership domains while employed across the service.

The national documents have been simplified, the evidence requirements have been merged with other processes such as MSR and performance appraisal and it is now hoped that midwives will find the new document easier to read and follow.

The programme has three domains of practice:

Competent: new graduate, new staff member, return to practice midwife who is competent to practice but needs to develop skills and experience to function effectively in the role.

Confident: has the necessary skills and experience to function confidently within her employed practice area. They will have a minimum of 12 months clinical practice experience and will be using evidence informed practice.

Leadership: has significant midwifery experience and is a role model and resource within the maternity service. Takes a lead role in quality improvement, innovation and practice development in their practice area.
