Midwifery: isn't there an app for that?

Published on

This is the framework for a workshop I facilitated at the 2013 Australian College of Midwives conference in Hobart, on the 30th September, about midwives' use of social media. This year my focus is moving away from the actual tools, to how we use them in a professional manner.
