ModulesPhase 1, Year 1
- The art and science of midwifery
The module prepares you for the role of the midwife throughout preconception, pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period. Building on previous knowledge, you will acquire an in-depth understanding and application of anatomy and physiology related to the childbearing continuum. A critical exploration of midwifery knowledge and the role of the midwife will provide a foundation for normal midwifery practice. This module will enable the acquisition of knowledge and skills required to support successful breast feeding.
- A psycho-social model for childbearing and childbirth
This module explores relevant sociological and psychological theory and research, related to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood. This module utilises a salutogenic approach to childbirth where birth is viewed as a normal physiological event. The module provides an exploration of factors which can influence the woman's psychological and emotional health and wellbeing. In application of this knowledge, the public health role of the midwife will be examined.
- Complex needs in childbirth
This module develops the ability to assess, plan, deliver and evaluate care for women with complex needs. The module provides an in-depth understanding of the range of complex factors which can potentially affect the health and well-being of the mother during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period.
- The compromised neonate
This module will prepare you for the role in supporting women and their partners and families when complications arise in the fetus and neonate, normally associated with complex needs in the mother. Developmental and nutritional needs of the neonate will be emphasised. You will be enabled to provide transitional care, special and high dependency care for the compromised neonate. Application of evidence-based practice will be reinforced to enhance provision of care.
- Practice-based assessment (continues)
This is a work-based learning module where you will be given academic credit for clinical practice and the safe and successful achievement of NMC midwifery proficiencies in practice. This will be facilitated by the clinical mentor. You are required to present two reflective accounts, one formative and the other summative demonstrating how care was delivered safely and appropriately to a woman. The formative account must be related to normal midwifery and the summative to a woman with complex obstetric needs. This will be within the context of the theoretical modules studied during phases one and two. The performance will be graded by the sign-off mentor using a level 6 marking grid. In addition, you will submit a supporting paper detailing a reflective analysis of the care given.
- Leadership, management and empowering
This module carries the theoretical underpinnings of leadership and management, and has been designed to encourage you to recognise the importance of these roles in the planning and provision of care in maternity services. You will be guided to review your knowledge, to explore and develop management and leadership skills and to integrate the application of professional, ethical and legal aspects of care in the empowerment of staff and clients/mothers/families. Case load holding will be reviewed within this module.
