This module is for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals with an interest in women’s health care, who work in both NHS and independent hospitals, and community settings.
The module will enable practitioners from a range of backgrounds (for example general practice, youth work, midwifery, mental health and learning disabilities) to explore specialist knowledge and practice, and examine professional ethical and legal issues that impact on women’s health care provision.
The module covers anatomy and physiology, and specific care management of gynaecological and menstrual disorders, oncology, continence issues, early pregnancy management, reproductive and sexual health, and breast care.
