Using a woman-centred approach this unit draws on midwifery, medical, pharmacological and other theory and research to significantly develop the student's midwifery knowledge and skills required to assist women and/or babies who are experiencing complexity during the postnatal period. The student will demonstrate integration of knowledge and skills through their work with women to address complex postnatal situations. This unit is designed to assist the student in forming useful midwifery relationships with women when they require extra midwifery and medical care.
This unit is co-taught with 11296 Complexity in Early Parenting.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Apply an advanced understanding of midwifery, medical, pharmacological and other theory as it applies to the provision of care for ill or 'at risk' women;
2. Apply an advanced understanding of midwifery, medical, pharmacological and other theory as it applies to the provision of care for ill or 'at risk' babies and infants;
3. Evaluate how to address the complex needs of ill or 'at risk' women and their babies; and
4. Interpret and communicate specialised knowledge of complex neonatal physiology and adaptation in the postnatal period.
