Description of module content:

During this module you will learn to care for childbearing women and pregnant people under the direct supervision and instruction of the midwife and continue to develop competence and confidence in the performance of core midwifery skills. You will also develop the knowledge and skills required to care for women and pregnant people with pathological gynaecological conditions under the supervision of an appropriate practitioner (LO 1-5). You will build on your learning about the importance of partnership working for the benefit of women, pregnant people and their families as detailed in the electronic Midwifery Practice Assessment Document (MPAD).
This module continues to develop your experience of midwifery practice with placements in the community setting and if available you will gain experience in the provision of continuity of care and /or carer. You will also gain gynaecological nursing experience. The focus of the gynaecological experience will be on caring for childbearing women, people and their families and women and pregnant people with gynaecological issues in partnership with a variety of health and social care professionals and service users. You will have the opportunity to further develop clinical and interpersonal skills in women’s health care settings. The practice will continue with gradual progression to increasing hands-on practice in accordance with a particular skill, situation, your own experience and practice supervisors/ practice assessor's professional judgement. This will include learning from experience, reflection on and in practice and feedback from practice supervisor/ practice assessor and appropriate health professionals. (LO1-5)
You will be supported by practice supervisors, practice assessor and academic assessor in each area as per Standards for student support and assessment (NMC , 2018).
