Join our inspiring module offering specialist, professional learning opportunities and we'll develop your in-depth knowledge and skills as well as improving patient safety, when caring for critically unwell pregnant women.
This module will enable you to develop in-depth knowledge and skills when caring for the critically unwell woman during the child bearing continuum to improve patient safety. We investigate the altered physiology of pregnancy, recognising deterioration in the pregnant woman, ethics and legal issues, and the management of conditions resulting in critical illness in pregnancy.
Our multidisciplinary team of specialists will use a variety of student-centered learning and teaching strategies including:
The module incorporates work-based learning that recognises your professional expertise, so you will care for women with high dependency needs in clinical practice and have a dedicated practice document to support your learning. You will need to access an ITU placement to underpin your learning on the module - this will require commitment, so you’ll be allocated a personal tutor to support you with your academic studies, as well as being supported in practice by an experienced clinical mentor.
You'll benefit from this module as a qualified midwife. You'll need access to an ITU placement for the duration of the course.
