Midwifery Placement 2: Complications and Consultations
In this second placement under supervision of a registered midwife, students provide care to an assigned caseload and extend their skills to more complex childbearing situations. Weekly tutorials focus on expanding the knowledge base of maternal-newborn complications, the indications for consultation and referral, and relationships with other health care providers. This course includes a week-long intensive at Laurentian that involves a series of lectures, small group and practice sessions which provide a theoretical and practical base for the placement. Pre-requisite: MIDW 3007 & MIDW 3094. 15 cr.
