The need for joint medical and midwifery care is stressed in the latest CEMACH report, with a recommendation that contemporary midwifery education prepares midwives for problems in pregnancy and adverse pregnancy outcome. Pre-conception care for women with medical disorders has also been stressed. Medical Disorders in Pregnancy is one of the first texts written specifically for midwives that provides an outline of common medical disorders that may be affected by pregnancy or which may cause pregnancy complications. For ease of use, all conditions are presented on two page templates, and each addresses: An explanation of the condition; Standard 'Non-pregnancy' treatment; Pre-conception care; Antenatal care; Intrapartum care, and Postnatal care. The management, treatment and care by both doctors and midwives are provided to allow a mutual understanding of each others roles and responsibilities.

Creating Wicked Students

Designing Courses for a Complex World

Author: Paul Hanstedt

Publisher: Stylus Publishing, LLC

Page: 200

In Creating Wicked Students, Paul Hanstedt argues that courses can and should be designed to present students with what are known as “wicked problems” because the skills of dealing with such knotty problems are what will best prepare them for life after college. As the author puts it, “this book begins with the assumption that what we all want for our students is that they be capable of changing the world....When a student leaves college, we want them to enter the world not as drones participating mindlessly in activities to which they’ve been appointed, but as thinking, deliberative beings who add something to society.” There’s a lot of talk in education these days about “wicked problems”—problems that defy traditional expectations or knowledge, problems that evolve over time: Zika, ISIS, political discourse in the era of social media. To prepare students for such wicked problems, they need to have wicked competencies, the ability to respond easily and on the fly to complex challenges. Unfortunately, a traditional education that focuses on content and skills often fails to achieve this sense of wickedness. Students memorize for the test, prepare for the paper, practice the various algorithms over and over again—but when the parameters or dynamics of the test or the paper or the equation change, students are often at a loss for how to adjust. This is a course design book centered on the idea that the goal in the college classroom—in all classrooms, all the time—is to develop students who are not just loaded with content, but capable of using that content in thoughtful, deliberate ways to make the world a better place. Achieving this goal requires a top-to-bottom reconsideration of courses, including student learning goals, text selection and course structure, day-to-day pedagogies, and assignment and project design. Creating Wicked Students takes readers through each step of the process, providing multiple examples at each stage, while always encouraging instructors to consider concepts and exercises in light of their own courses and students.

Training in safe operative birth is a key priority in obstetrics. Around one in five women are dissatisfied with their labour and birth, especially operative birth, often because of poor communication or inadequate technical skills. This can lead to sexual dysfunction and aversion to further pregnancy, as well as increases in complaints and litigation. This book accompanies the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists' Operative Birth Simulation Training (ROBuST) course, and will be an essential resource for all obstetricians and maternity care providers. Internationally recognised contributors discuss all aspects of operative birth including: vacuum and forceps-assisted birth; Caesarean section at full dilatation; safe and effective practice of Kielland's forceps; essential non-technical skills; teamwork; and medico-legal aspects. A simple-to-use flowchart is included to guide the reader through the essential steps for a successful operative vaginal birth. Each chapter identifies the key learning points and provides step-by-step instructions for performing each technique.
