This module will lead students towards a high level of critical reflection on the role of midwives and the potential of evidence-based midwifery care in the neonatal period. You will gain in-depth knowledge about the current state of the evidence, as well as the current state-of-the-art regarding care in the neonatal period in the member states of the European Union. Throughout the module you will be guided to develop a scientifically reflected approach for the best practice in normal processes, as well as for supporting normalcy in difficult situations. At the end of this module, you will be aware of the ethical, political, financial and individual implications of midwifery care in the neonatal period for all members of the family. Finally, you will reflect on your own practice in light of the newly gathered knowledge, presenting a creative, challenging and persuasive discourse on the basis of current research evidence.
