Women's Health

This module is for nurses 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 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; specific care management of gynaecological and menstrual disorders; reproductive and sexual health; oncology; continence issues, early pregnancy management; and breast care. This will enable practitioners to enhance their knowledge in women’s health care, by linking theory and research into clinical practice, and develop strategies for the future provision of women’s health in their current area of practice.
