This module will enable you to develop in-depth knowledge and skills when caring for the critically unwell woman during the child bearing continuum to improve patient safety.

The module incorporates work-based learning that recognises your professional expertise, so you will care for women with high dependency needs in clinical practice and have a dedicated practice document to support your learning.
