Her class 10 students contributed to the review and updating of the evidence base in selected clinical practice guidelines in this edition of the book and in doing so, met course objectives, polished their critical thinking and writing skills and have authentic experience in publication and developing evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.

Dr. Farley served as a guest “profesora de parteras” to the traditional midwives of the rural, mountainous area near Lake Yojoa in Honduras, Central America and to Antigua, Guatemala.  Classes were developed and offered in affiliation with the NGO humanitarian organization, Program for Rural Reconstruction (PRR). PRR practices integrated development within four areas – education, organization, health, and economic improvement.  The goal is to help improve the quality of the people’s lives in such a way that the villagers will acquire the ability to continue the process, allowing them to move from being recipients of aid to leaders in their own development process.  It was with this goal in mind that Dr. Farley provided education to the rural traditional midwives and women of the area.  Educational workshops were developed in response to a perceived need on the part of the Honduran and Guatemalan midwives themselves for formal training to improve their skills and knowledge.
