    Abstract

    A workshop on international research in midwifery was held at the triennial International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) Congress in Vienna, April 2002. Thirty-five participants from 12 countries took part. The participants themselves defined the agenda, and subsequent discussion addressed the following issues: international research relationships and collaboration; ethical conduct in international research in midwifery; the role of the ICM in international research; and identifying topics for an international midwifery research agenda. Recommendations arising from this workshop were: that guidelines and a code of ethics for the conduct of international research in midwifery be developed; that the ICM and national midwifery organisations continue to actively support research, and further develop that support; that the ICM support education and capacity building for research at basic and continuing education levels; and that the priorities identified for collaborative international studies be updated on a regular basis.
