UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
This unit contains Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activities that require students to meet mandatory fit to practice obligations prior to attending. Failure to comply by the fit to practice deadline will result in the cancellation of your WIL activity. Full details are available at www.scu.edu.au/healthplacements.
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.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
demonstrate a broad understanding and application of midwifery knowledge, theoretical concepts and clinical skills in the provision of safe and quality care
provide evidence, through reflection on practice, of effective woman-centred, and intra-professional communication with women and their families
show critical thinking and creative skills in identifying and solving problems within the discipline
demonstrate a satisfactory level of progression towards the ANMAC Midwifery Professional Experiences (MPE) requirements
