The September delivery runs in conjunction with the pre-registration Midwifery programme; qualified midwives need only attend the first workshop, 17 September, and study the remainder of the programme online.
This module equips you with the knowledge and skills to effectively and safely undertake examination of the newborn/6-8 week examination. It also includes the Qualificatory Practice Unit HMFG9001 Examination of the Newborn which enables you to develop specific skills in examination of the newborn. You will need to demonstrate that you are competent in your final assessment in the specified skills.
You will need to complete an induction prior to commencement of your first module. We have a comprehensive online induction package to welcome you to both the University and your programme of study. Alternatively classroom-based induction days take place at our Lancaster and Carlisle campuses and are usually scheduled for the first week of each semester.
This module can be studied as part of the PgC Practice Development: Midwifery.
