6cp; blended mode
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject provides students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be able to effectively translate evidence into midwifery practice as well as be aware of the value and utility of research within the practice environment. Students gain a broad understanding of quantitative and qualitative approaches to research and explore the different study designs that are common in maternity care. The ability to critique the evidence assists students to understand how evidenced-based protocols /guidelines are developed and used in practice. A focus on using woman-centred language helps students develop the skills needed to share and discuss research evidence, not only with women and their families but also within the broader maternity care team.
