In this subject, students will develop relevant theoretical knowledge in breastfeeding and selected aspects of infant feeding and nutrition. This knowledge will allow the student to apply the principles of family centred health care focusing on health promotion within a culturally diverse practice setting. By participating in authentic learning and assessment, students will construct knowledge and understanding of the anatomical, physiological and pathophysiological processes of lactation and specialised infant feeding and nutrition. This will include the preterm infant, growth restricted infant, and the newborn with infection and selected congenital anomalies.
Passing requirements: complete and submit all assessment items; achieve a cumulative score of at least 50% after the application of any penalties such as late penalties; achieve a satisfactory grade for the online module.
