Perinatal Interprofessional Psychosocial Education for Maternity Clinicians (PIPE-MC)
EOI to participate in the PIPE-MC Program
The PIPE-MC project is a simulation based, interprofessional training program designed to strengthen the capacity of health professionals to care for women with perinatal mental health concerns. A key focus of the program is to build skills in interprofessional collaboration. The
development and evaluation of PIPE-MC has been funded by the Commonwealth Government Perinatal Mental Health Priority Grants.
The PIPE-MC workshops will be offered online as full day workshop June 22nd 0800-1630.
Online workshops are limited to approx. 12 interprofessional participants. A calendar invite will be sent with details.
Participants in each workshop will include midwives, obstetricians, general practitioners,
(e.g.GP/Obstetricians), child & family health nurses/maternal child health nurses, and allied health: perinatal mental health, social workers, drug & alcohol clinicians as well as other related disciplines).
The interactive workshops will be supported by online augmented reality resources that build on skills practiced in the workshop and a community of practice forum. At the end of the training participants will have skills and confidence to
• identity, explore and clarify the concerns/worries and strengths/resources that women, their partners and family have
• identify and discuss referral pathways options with women and families
• explore and clarify the experience and support needs of fathers, non-birth parents and other family
• work in culturally sensitive ways including working with women and families from Indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds including cultural and peer support workers
• participate in interprofessional communication and collaboration
