In this unit the student will commence working towards regaining their competence as a midwife for re-entry into the midwifery workforce. Using a woman-centred, primary health care approach, the student will demonstrate an integrated understanding of comprehensive midwifery, medical, pharmacological and other theory and research to assist in the development of midwifery competence. The student will hone their knowledge of wellness as they move towards regaining competence as a midwife. The substantial practice component of this unit is designed to assist students to form useful midwifery relationships through the continuity of care model.
