This module will enable a closer look at the processes during labour and birth. The duration of labour phases, inclusively the discussion on their definitions will be investigated. The focus of this module will lie on how the dynamic nature of childbirth can be supported in view of its physiological duration. The midwife’s role and the woman’s perspective will be at the centre of this reflection..
Relevant topics of the module are methodological aspects and statistical analyses used in different types of study designs. Beside a statistical refresher, different methodological possibilities will be compared and critically reflected. Therefore the module is suitable as a preparation for the module “Advanced research methods”.
