This paper is adapted from a plenary lecture presented at the 22nd International Congress, International Confederation of Midwives, Kobe, Japan, October 11, 1990. Midwifery education and research in the past, present, and future are discussed. Special emphasis is placed on innovation in midwifery education to address more adequately the worldwide concern about safe motherhood. Midwifery research and the integral components of information and inquiry are also discussed, with emphasis on five major areas in need of further research. Collaborative education and research are explored from both an interdisciplinary and an international perspective.
