JOB PURPOSE:

Horizon Health Network is currently seeking a midwife for a temporary eight-month assignment to cover a maternity leave. We are seeking an individual who is committed to building a practice which can deliver comprehensive primary maternity care in collaboration with our health care team. This is an exciting opportunity for both new and experienced midwives.

Horizon Midwives are salaried employees of the regional health authority. As such, they are integrated into the clinical program for maternal and newborn care. A new community-based clinic has been established to support this practice. We strongly value patient and family centred care, excellence in practice, and teamwork.

Midwives are autonomous health care professionals who are members of a professional multidisciplinary primary health care team providing maternal and newborn services within assigned geographical boundaries. Midwives are responsible for the care, assessment, and monitoring of women during normal pregnancy, labour and the postpartum period as well as their healthy newborns. They are also responsible for the management of low risk, spontaneous vaginal deliveries. Duties include, but are not limited to: counseling, providing education and clinical care. They provide health care in clients' homes, communities and in hospital and clinic. Midwives may consult with, make referrals to, or transfer care to other medical practitioners. They may prescribe and administer drugs, order and interpret screening and diagnostic tests, and may provide other health care series within the standards of practice.

These duties are the basic and prime duties of the job; related and allied duties may be assigned from time to time as may become necessary to the operation of the service.
