This final-year subject consolidates the student's knowledge, skills and attitudes in midwifery care as the student prepares for practice. In the midwifery practice setting, students implement care based on clinical decisions developed in collaboration. The subject covers maternity emergency situations in the transition to becoming a midwife. Students apply their knowledge of pathophysiology in maternity and neonatal emergencies in practice using simulated drills. The subject builds students capacity to work as part of a team and has an emphasis on effective communication, escalation of care, reflection on practice, handover and documentation in all midwifery situations.
