Midwifery is an ever evolving profession and together with the challenges and changes in maternity care provision that the NHS presents the midwife needs to be able to critically evaluate and redefine the multi-functional role of the midwife within the context of health care provision and the changing nature of society. This module provides such an opportunity through action learning sets.
The use of action learning sets to review current practice will be the main learning strategy.
• Informal debates, discussions and presentations will support the identification of the learning needs and will inform the action learning sets. • The organisation of the time allocated to the trigger sessions will take account of time needed to allow students to gain the optimum learning experience from the learning sets. • Students will be expected to keep a reflective diary. This will enable them to reflect on their individual learning outcomes and experiences and on the process of the learning sets. • Students will also be expected to utilise the module discussion board on studentcentral.
