The Women’s Maternity Services Education Program (MSEP)
The vision of MSEP is to improve the outcomes of women and their babies through the provision of interdisciplinary education, supportive partnerships and capacity building in rural and regional maternity services.
The MSEP programs in their current face to face format have been temporarily suspended. We have developed a MSEP Online program for rural maternity services. Please contact us to discuss an online education package that will address the needs of your organisation.
