Module overview

This module introduces the core principles and scope of midwifery practice in order for you to contribute to the provision of safe, competent and evidence-based care throughout the childbearing continuum.

This module enables you to underpin midwifery practice with the appropriate life science base. This includes a comprehensive knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and relevant pathophysiology of the human body, and the ability to apply that science to the provision of midwifery care.
