The MINT Project, Midwives IN Teaching:

A study to identify measures that can be used to determine the value that midwife teachers bring to childbearing women

The research project will investigate:

This project will help the NMC to decide whether there is an optimum midwife teacher resource and if so whether it could be universally applied. As such the information might be interesting to universities but the decision would lie with the NMC.

The design of the study includes a UK wide survey, case study work in six universities and a prospective phase to follow a sample of newly qualified midwives into their first six months of practice.

The MINT project is being undertaken over 18 months, commencing in March 2009 and completing in September 2010.
