I am conducting an Action Research Project exploring the above and have so far not found any published evidence. The NMC do not currently set the curriculum for individual degree programmes so the teaching of this subject is dependant upon individual institution programmes.
Any research or information on this subject would be much appreciated.
Thank you.

What are the commonalities to be considered with international midwifery curricula in regard to the above question?
Relevant answer
Answer
By a 'culturally competent midwifery education' do you mean one that provides the curriculum in a culturally congruent manner, to meet the needs of the ME woman studying midwifery, or that the ME midwife learns to provide culturally sensitive care to childbearing women and their families? Either way, the cultural aspects surrounding birth – both for midwives and for women, are intertwined. I believe the biggest consideration that must first be addressed is the fact that there is frequently very little understanding, or consideration (at least at the institutional level), of what childbearing women in the 'Middle East' (that’s a very big and diverse group!) actually want, or feel is important, as far as care and support surrounding pregnancy and birth. Secondly, by and large, my experience in two ME countries has been of a fairly medicalized, interventionist and authoritarian approach to birth, with midwives not really functioning with a lot of autonomy. Support of a normal physiologic birth process, providing woman centered care that is dignified, respectful and empowering, supporting autonomous evidence-informed decision making - these are all concepts that are being promoted internationally and by the ICM in the context of midwifery education and midwifery care – how do these ideas translate to the individual countries of the ME?
