Call for Evidence on the Development and Deployment of Maternity Support Workers
The HEE Maternity programme has established a project to develop the role of the Maternity Support Worker (MSW).
As part of the development of a new competency and career framework and nationally defined job role for MSWs, Health Education England (HEE) is looking for examples of good practice across the NHS, as well as other service areas and disciplines.
The framework will provide guidance on the competencies, skills, knowledge and behaviours MSWs will need to provide high quality care in line with the vision outlined within Better Births.
Evidence can be submitted online using the form at the bottom of this webpage and any queries can be sent to the team via email@example.com.
Contributors are asked to include a description of the example (service, practice, intervention etc.) and a brief explanation of why they consider it to be good practice.
HEE is looking for examples of the education, training, development and deployment of maternity support workers, with a focus on:
- Current education and training programmes (including details of external providers/in-house provision
- What competence frameworks are currently in use for the MSW workforce
- Examples of MSW job descriptions (bands 3 and above)
- Examples of innovative practice relating to MSWs (including education, training, development and deployment)
The call for evidence will close on Friday 20 July 2018.
