Description of module content:

This module develops your midwifery practice and progress through your programme. The module represents the second 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 develop the necessary skills required in caring for childbearing women, birthing people and their families with a focus on additional care (LOs 1- 5). You will have the opportunity to develop clinical and interpersonal skills in maternity care settings (LOs 1, 2, 5). You will continue to record births and 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 includes clinical skills such as the assessment and response to urgent and emergency situations, cannulation and perineal repair.
