This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
Substantial changes have occurred in care provided to mothers and families during labour and birth. Students explore intrapartum factors affecting maternal, fetal and neonatal outcomes. Focus is on the assessment and care of the mother and fetus during labour and birth, including fetal health surveillance, labor support, pain management, labour induction and augmentation, and labour complications, such as fetal malpresentations and malpositioning, labour dystocia, shoulder dystocia, placental abnormalities, cord prolapse, precipitous birth and operative delivery. Learning tools and activities, such as theory-based classroom learning, collaboration, discussion and simulation experiences assist students in expanding understanding of intrapartum care.
All sections for this course are in progress.
