|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Healthcare Sciences
This subject will develop theoretical knowledge of the 'at risk' newborn. This knowledge
will be applied with a family centred focus within the clinical practice setting.
The knowledge gained will enable the practitioner to interpret signs elicited by the
'at risk' newborn, identify the related anatomical, physiological and pathophysiological
processes and the expected short and long term outcomes of a plan of care.
- interpret the pathophysiological processes occurring in the 'at risk' newborn;
- develop a family centred plan of care within a framework of cultural safety;
- critically analyse the outcomes of a plan of care to facilitate improved health promotion;
- explain anatomical, physiological processes related to an 'at risk' newborn;
- relate pre-pregnancy conditions, pregnancy and birth to the anatomical and physiological
processes in the 'at risk' newborn.
