Based on a primary health care foundation and framework, MID525 builds on understanding gained in MID452. Where MID452 explored midwifery as primary health care for the individual woman, MID525 takes more of a community / models based approach. MID525, framed by the tenets of social justice, examines how the midwife can work towards improving maternal and infant health (closing the gap between Australian Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian health outcomes). Informed by the principles of Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) and Appreciative Inquiry (AI), students apply their learning to the community contexts in which midwifery care is delivered. Students will explore what it means for the midwife to work to their full scope of practice in the womens health care context. Midwifery strategies to reduce the incidence and impact of violence on childbearing women. Students will gain an understanding of midwifery models of care practiced in the rural and metropolitan areas in both Australian and global contexts.
