Midwifery E-Book Resources

From the E-Book Foundry

In 2013, the professors of McMaster University’s Midwifery Education Program turned the lack of reasonably priced quality educational resources for their students into an opportunity to produce better, cheaper educational materials.

Four years later, the authors, illustrators and editors who populate McMaster’s e-Book Foundry have already created three e-books enhanced with multiple integrated features including interactive quizzes, didactic videos, and customized content.

We partner with professors to author our chapters, design the enhanced content in-house, and collaborate with students to evaluate the results. This enables us to produce high-quality, cost-effective, and engaging educational resources for midwifery students and professionals everywhere.

In 'Professional Roles' we detail midwifery's influence on health policy and health system operation to improve quality of care, and midwifery's role in health education, whether of future midwives or recipients of care. We also focus on the role of midwife scholars as prominent researchers who build the evidence for and deepen the understanding of the impact of midwives and midwifery care. These philosophic and ethical underpinnings of midwifery care are as essential as learning about physiologic processes. Additional features include quizzes, case studies, educational activity guides, and a glossary.
