Description of module content:

This module consolidates your professional practice and preparation for registration as a midwife with the NMC. The module is the third of three parts of practice learning experience which enable you to meet the Future Midwife Proficiencies (NMC, 2019). For each part you will have practice supervisors, a practice assessor and an academic assessor who will plan and support your learning in each area as per the Standards for Student Support and Assessment (NMC, 2018). The focus of the experience will be to enable you to consolidate the necessary skills required in caring for childbearing women, birthing people and their families (LOs 1- 5). You will have the opportunity to exercise clinical and interpersonal skills in maternity care settings (LOs 1, 2, 5). You will continue to record births and the clinical examination of childbearing women and their babies as required by the European Midwifery Directives (2005) and the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC, 2019). You will also undertake mandatory skills and development as part of your clinical skills passport detailed in the MPAD.

This module consolidates additional clinical skills such as midwives’ breech and also includes cannulation and perineal repair.
