Stillbirth Prevention for Aboriginal Mob: Safer Baby Bundle

Wednesday, November 24th 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Despite Australia being one of the safest places globally to have a baby, for every 1,000 babies born, there are sadly six babies who will be born still (Stillbirth Centre for Research Excellence, 2021).For Aboriginal mob stillbirth occurrences continue to remain disproportionately high. It is imperative for Aboriginal health care providers to be informed, prepared and supported to prevent stillbirth and provide a more culturally inclusive health care environment.

In this webcast the Training Support Unit (TSU) will be joined by the Maternity and Neonatal Patient Safety Team at the Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC) as they introduce their professional role and the Safer Baby Bundle (the bundle) developed by the Stillbirth Centre for Research Excellence. The CEC panel will explore the importance of the Aboriginal health worker/practitioner role in preventing still birth and how to incorporate culturally safe and responsive care into midwifery, child and family healthcare and beyond.
