These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

1 apply theoretical and evidence-based knowledge to midwifery care for women who require complex assessments and/or medical interventions during childbearing
2 identify and summarise the theoretical and evidence-based knowledge needed to be able to provide midwifery care to women and/or babies who have common challenges or disorders during childbearing
3 explain and analyse the theoretical and evidence-based knowledge needed to be able to provide midwifery care to women and/or babies who have common challenges or disorders during childbearing
4 apply clinical decision-making when caring for women and babies if complexities exist and/or arise.
