Placement 2 (8weeks)
Work placement, 11.00 ECTS
Practical experience of previously acquired theoretical knowledge:
Gynaecology and oncology:
• basic nursing care of gynaecological and obstetrical patients
• use of materials and instruments and patient contact by applying hygienic standards
• support and care of the labouring woman
• fundamentals of interpretation of the cardiotocograph and fetal heart frequency patterns and the course of labour
In this placement the students become confident in using their practical skills. The placement will be in a number of clinical settings as well as in midwifery offices, birth houses, health and social care settings.
The accompanying course “ integrative process” enhances the knowledge and the integration of theory and practice and helps the future midwife to work independently.
The students keep a placement log for reflecting, evaluating and documenting the work experience and the learning process. This is supplemented by a written evaluation by the teaching midwife and the local supervisor.
Mode of delivery
The students are integrated in the clinical areas; they practice communication and clinical skills under supervision.
