Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Using a woman-centred, primary health care approach, this unit will facilitate the student's acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitude in working with women and their partners and families while women are 'with child'. Based on a view of childbearing as a normal life event, students use midwifery and other theory to develop their understanding of the intricacies of women and their babies in well pregnancies as contrasted with a biomedical model of health.

This unit will be co-taught with 11333 With Woman With Child.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Analyse, understand and apply theory and research to practice with well pregnant women, their unborn babies and their families;

2. Discuss the social and cultural influences women experience in pregnancy and the possible implications for midwifery work;

3. Show evidence of their ability to form working relationships with women who are 'with child' ; and

4. Evaluate and discuss the difference between nursing and midwifery philosophies and models of care.
