Transcript

  • 1. Young Mums & Antenatal education
    How do we engage them in a culturally safe way?
  • 2. Cultural Safety
    Quality Care
    From different ethnicities
    Within cultural norms & values of the patient
    Concept developed in New Zealand
  • 3. “An individuals cultural background will impact how one best learns and integrates new information” (Berman, 2006)
  • 4. Reasons for non attendance
    Feeling judged, by older mums & Health Professionals
    Feeling bored
    Feeling ‘labelled’
    Sounded just like ‘school’
    The word ‘ante’ sounded negative
    Transport difficulties
    Not given same service as older mums
  • 5. Often they describe Health Professionals “do stuff to them”
    They are not given informed choice
    They feel they get a substandard service
    They have mums at home, yet they feel they are being ‘parented’ through the maternity system.
    Could this influence their choice as to whether they attend antenatal classes?
  • 6. Being Culturally safe
    Carefully worded advertising to avoid classes sounding authoritarian or like school
    What words can we use?
  • 7. “Being part of a ‘Young Mums’ club matters to young pregnant women emphasising the importance of peer group support” (Howie & Carlisle, 2005)
  • 8. Drop in sessions
    They often problem share
    They often work together for solutions
    Oral sharing of information within safe environment
    Enjoy the informal format
    They are in control of the sessions
  • 9. Learning needs
    “Prenatal education programs are often designed and infused with content from the viewpoint of the health professional. Yet providers and receivers are vastly different in their views” (Berman, 2006)
  • 10. Empowerment Opportunity
    Allow them to decide on the subjects they want to cover
  • 11. “Classes are of limited reach” (Renkert & Nutbeam, 2001)
    So alternate channels for delivery should be explored and tested
  • 12. Change of facilitation
    Develop ‘young mums’ clubs
    Develop sessions from early pregnancy
    Provide ‘drop in sessions’
    Tie in antenatal appointments with ‘young mums’ club
    Look at text messaging
    Facebook
    YouTube
    Blogging & Email
  • 13. Final Fact
    "Studies show that teen pregnancy drops off significantly after the age of 25“
    Ref: Colorado Springs local newspaper (1999)
