Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

discuss the history of Australia’s health care system, and how the history of midwifery in Australia, impacts contemporary midwifery care
define the principles and philosophy of contemporary midwifery from a feminist perspective
apply legal, ethical theories and legal principles to discussions on common dilemmas in practice, women's rights, and health care practice
discuss midwifery as a public health strategy that improves maternal health outcomes, and quality and safety
