Facilitating Complex Childbirth

Continuing Professional Development (short course)

Distance learning, Chelmsford

12 weeks

Module level: 7

Module credits: 30 credits

Overview

Develop your existing knowledge and skills by exploring how, as midwives, we can support positive outcomes for women with complex social, emotional, and physical needs.

On this module, you'll explore the role of the midwife in supporting women with complex social, emotional and physical needs, particularly during the intrapartum period. You'll use the most up to date national and international reports into the causes of maternal morbidity and mortality to evolve and adapt to the needs of midwives, women and wider society.

You’ll be encouraged to identify both direct and indirect causes of maternal mortality. You'll explore the role of the midwife in addressing these, as well as demonstrating an in-depth understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of a chosen condition.

Furthermore, you’ll give consideration to wider determinants which can impact on the needs of women and evaluate and reflect upon your own clinical practice and how you can support positive outcomes for women with complex needs in the future.

You can take this module standalone or as part of our MSc Advanced Midwifery Practice course.

Who should attend?

You'll be a registered midwife.

Where you'll study

Your faculty

The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.

We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.

We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
