 United Kingdom Continence Society

Nurses, Midwives and Allied Health Professionals Forum

Why should I join UKCS if I am a midwife? Back to main NMAHP page

To learn:

UKCS is a well established, multidisciplinary society with a focus on urogynaecology, urology, coloproctology, obstetric injury and long term pelvic health with the aim of raising standards in continence care throughout the UK.

Membership of UKCS will allow midwives to take advantage of the wealth of information available on the website to support their practice when caring for women and birthing people with concerns around continence and pelvic health. This includes free access to webinars on a variety of topics including post-natal bladder management with more planned for this coming year

Midwives with a special interest in obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASI) and perineal trauma will be able to access the new competency package and study day designed to support the development of skills in endoanal ultrasound scanning and management of OASI in pregnancy and the postnatal period.

To engage:

Attendance at the annual scientific meeting and the AHP forums will enable midwives to learn from other clinicians and expand their own professional network to support their development in pelvic health. Webinars planned for this coming year include post pelvic floor and OASI study days. UKCS is a supportive and welcoming society that appreciates the value of multidisciplinary working and recognises the experience and knowledge that midwife members can bring to the group.

To support:

NICE guidance recommends that all women using maternity services should be given information on pelvic floor dysfunction, how to prevent it, the symptoms, and how to access local treatment. Membership of UKCS will support its midwifery members to provide women and birthing people with the vital information needed to achieve this national ambition.

The NMAHP Forum is led by your AHP representatives on the UKCS steering committee : Sacha Newman, Jenny Munro and Kathy Parsons.
