Midwifery services have the potential to increase access to sexual and reproductive healthcare for populations in Canada that have poor access to appropriate care. The goal of this research program is to generate and mobilize knowledge to improve equitable access to high quality, appropriate sexual and reproductive healthcare in Canada by increasing the contributions of midwives. Our research will involve:
- examining how we can create and mobilize knowledge to support the scale up of midwifery services in Canada, and
- examining how we can address barriers that limit midwifery roles and scopes of practice in health systems across Canada.
