This introductory module sets the scene on leadership in maternity. It is based on a  model of leadership which was developed for senior midwives in the 1990s. More recently there has been a greater realisation that leadership is the role of everyone and not something which should simply be the preserve of managers.

On completion of this i-learn module on midwifery leadership you will:

  • have an understanding of the leadership role at all levels
  • develop an appreciation of the difference between management and leadership and know what style is needed when
  • appreciate some of the current leadership theories and terminology
  • identify pathways for leadership development

Study time: 10 minutes
