This is a second year unit within the Clinical Studies Cluster and introduces the student to caring for the woman who experiences complications in pregnancy, labour and birth and/or postnatal period related to existing or emerging pathophysiology. The aim of this unit is to extend the student’s understanding of physiological changes that occur across the continuum of care, to inform assessment and midwifery care where the risk of maternal or foetal complications has been identified. The role of collaboration within a multidisciplinary care model will be explored using the Australian College of Midwives’ National Midwifery Guidelines for Consultation and Referral.

Students will have opportunity to apply and integrate knowledge and skills learnt in this unit and previous units during a two (2) week (80 hour) clinical placement and by continuing to recruit and maintain Continuity of Care experiences.
