The main aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a work-based module and in-service educational programme in perineal repair for midwives on their perceived level of competency undertaking this skill in clinical practice. The reduction in the practice of episiotomy, lack of formal instruction in perineal repair and inconsistency in perineal trauma management amongst midwives and students has resulted in the lack of perceived confidence and competency in perineal repair locally, necessitating a structured training programme in perineal repair.
