'Advancing Skills in Midwifery Practice' provides a guide to continuing professional development needs and meeting the latest Post-Registration Education and Practice (PREP) requirements. This book builds on 'Skills for Midwifery Practice' by Ruth Johnson and Wendy Taylor, following a similar format already familiar to many midwives. Although  aimed primarily at midwives, the principles and philosophy also apply across interprofessional boundaries. Grounded in safe practice and on contemporary evidence, this book ensures that the health and wellbeing of the mother, baby and family remain at the forefront of care.
