Abstract [en]

Use of simulation-based learning in midwifery education programmes is crucial. Due to midwifery educators in Bangladesh were lacking competence in using such pedagogical methods in their teaching, they were invited to participate in a simulation-based learning course. In this paper, we present a study on the perceived usefulness of this course. Semi-structured individual interviews were conducted with 17 of the 28 midwifery educators participating on the course and data were analysed using inductive content analysis. Findings showed that the simulation-based learning course for midwifery educators in Bangladesh was useful. It "builds the professional competence of midwifery educators" and "equips them with strategies to empower midwifery students". The findings show that a simulation-based learning course is of major importance in pre-service education in settings where the capacity of midwifery educators needs to be strengthened. However, without continuous in-service training, the midwives' competence will deteriorate and this in turn will threaten the quality of midwifery education and the midwifery profession. Thus, contextualized pre- and in-service simulation-based education to secure midwifery core competencies is necessary. Simultaneously implementing and evaluating pre- and in-service education programmes is the next step in the struggle to increase the quality of maternity care services.
