The theme for year one is normal childbearing and the focus is on the acquisition of knowledge and skills for normal midwifery and the development of study skills.
In year two, the theme is diversity in maternal and neonatal health. The focus is on further development of knowledge and skills in normal midwifery and the acquisition of knowledge and competence to participate in the care of women and babies who have complex needs. During the final year of the course, you will continue to develop midwifery skills and knowledge to ensure readiness to assume the full role and responsibilities of a midwife.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
