A-EQUIP (advocating for education and quality improvement) is the new employer-led model of supervision. The model promotes a continuous improvement process through staff development, and action to improve quality and experience of care.
The professional midwifery advocate (PMA) or professional nurse advocate (PNA) is a leadership and advocacy role designed to deploy the A-EQUIP model. Our course will prepare you to undertake the role of the PNA or PMA , and is for midwives and nurses who are being supported to develop this role within their organisation. You do not need to have been a Supervisor of Midwives in the former statutory model to undertake this course.
We want to enable you to work with the A-EQUIP model, and believe A-EQUIP will have a positive impact on the physical and emotional wellbeing of midwives and nurses and those working across healthcare , and will also improve the safety, quality and kindness to the people that we work with.
