How can the Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 of reducing maternal and infant mortality be met when these two situations prevail? This book address the real issues of teaching and learning real midwifery. Skilled midwives have been shown globally to reduce maternal and infant mortality economically, effectively and respectfully.

      Professional Development for Appraisal and Revalidation

      The Dr Hairy Workbook

      by Dr David Hindmarsh|Edward Picot

      Winner of the 'Primary Health Care' category in the BMA Medical Book Awards 2012! Here's a snippet of what the judges said: "This book is outstanding, original and will provoke the viewer of the DVDs and reader of the book (used in conjunction) to look at their CPD in a new way." This book is designed to help GPs with reflective learning, appraisals and revalidation. To make this process more interesting, the authors have provided: * a range of videos to watch – they are meant to be humorous, but also address serious issues * poems to read – believe it or not, they can be useful * exercises to work through and thought-provoking questions to consider These videos, poems and exercises make the whole area of professional development more accessible, more relevant, and a lot more fun (they’ve even thrown in a few jokes ...). GPs all need to reflect on the way we practise and deal with our patients; they all have to undergo annual appraisals; and soon all GPs have to be revalidated. All these stages of continued development will be easier with this workbook. Includes a DVD of 13 short films starring Dr Hairy (of YouTube fame). In his own inimitable (if somewhat irreverent) style, he tackles a wide range of topical issues.
