Professional and educational standards of proficiencies have made clear the importance of midwives working across the professional pillars of the profession: research, education, clinical practice and leadership. Safe and effective care needs an evidence base from research, which is then disseminated and supported through education and strategically implemented into clinical practice and sustained through effective leadership. Furthermore, understanding midwifery professional pillars is relevant for promoting career pathways and ensuring professional recognition alongside our multi-disciplinary colleagues.
