This unit extends and integrates learning from MIDW335 Babies Needing Extra Care, through simulation laboratories and supervised clinical practice, with a focus on care of the neonate with complex needs including admission to a Special Care Nursery. Students will have the opportunity to develop skills in neonatal care, meeting the needs of the family with a sick neonate and education requirements of families. Students will continue to participate in and learn from the Continuity of Care Experience (CCE).
This unit is required by students to assist them to use theory to drive clinical practice in neonatal care and to understand needs of the family, inclusive of education needs.
The aim of this fourth Clinical Midwifery Practice unit is to build on students' previous and current learning to further contextualize their theoretical knowledge through clinical practice.
