UG Coursework Unit
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
apply theoretical and evidence-based knowledge to midwifery care for women who require complex assessments and/or medical interventions during childbearing
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
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
apply clinical decision-making when caring for women and babies if complexities exist and/or arise.
