Join ACNM on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 4 PM PST for a live webinar on Midwives and Liability with Katie Page. Midwives are likely to experience adverse client outcomes that sometimes will result in disciplinary action against their license or litigation. Awareness and understanding about the incidence and outcomes of litigation involving midwives is limited. In 2018, the ACNM Professional Liability Committee conducted the third national survey on midwives and liability. This presentation presents the results of the survey, now published in JMWH, and includes discussion on support strategies for midwives who experience adverse events or disciplinary action, or who are involved in litigation, and secondary trauma which may follow.
