Situated in the final session of the course, this subject is the capstone subject of the Bachelor of Midwifery. Students consolidate their understanding of the professional role of the midwife, and recognise and display the professional attributes of a midwife. In preparation for their registration as midwives, students review the NMBA Midwife Standards for Practice and Code of Professional Conduct, the International Code of Ethics for the Midwife, and reflect on their practice in relation to these and other regulatory frameworks. They identify their role as a member of the maternity health care team and explore the issues related to working in this environment.
