Pharmacotherapeutics for Midwifery Primary Care
This course is designed to meet the educational requirements of registered midwives seeking endorsement for scheduled medicines. This course enables students to acquire the additional knowledge necessary to function safely and effectively as an autonomous prescriber within the Australian health care system. It will provide students with advanced knowledge in the area of clinical assessment and history taking, and pharmacotherapeutics as it applies to the pharmacological management of health conditions within the context of midwifery primary care. The course uses targeted case-based scenarios to further develop students’ application of knowledge of drug action, understanding the pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options in generating a medication management plan using evidence-based approaches, as well as the quality use of medicines implications surrounding these therapeutic agents.
