Clinical studies subject
This subject aims to assist students in understanding the influence of developmental origins of disease, adverse perinatal factors and prematurity which impact on the adaptation of the neonate to the extrauterine environment. These developmental origins have potential long-term health consequences for the neonate. Students consider genetics and embryological development in the context of altered embryological development, its impact on the newborn, and the psychological and emotional responses of the family. The ethical issues associated with perinatal care are explored. Furthermore, consideration is given to the initial assessment and management of the compromised neonate and the neonate at risk. While this subject critically explores the health team's response to prematurity and adverse birth outcomes, the nurse's role is highlighted. Throughout this subject, the importance of the family is emphasised, and the neonate is also recognised as an individual and as an important family member.
