Assessment Title Portfolio
Task Description

A reflective journal is a way of thinking in a critical and analytical way about your clinical experience as a student midwife. It shows how different aspects of your work interconnect and can be very useful for identifying gaps in knowledge and ethical dilemmas or situations that need further thought. Reflective writing is more personal than other kinds of academic writing and is an exploration of events not just a description of them.

You are required to have your 10 ‘Continuity of Care’ (CoC) reflective journals uploaded onto the Graduate Diploma of Midwifery Moodle page and completed by the due date.

Each reflective journal needs to have met the minimum set requirements which include:

  • 4 x antenatal visits
  • intrapartum care (labour and birth)
  • 2 x postnatal visits
  • a minimum total of ten (10) hours for each CoC experience and a maximum of twenty (20) hours.

Assessment Title Written Assessment
Task Description

Weighting: 30%

Word Limit: 2000

Objectives: This assessment item relates to learning outcomes One (1), Two (2), Three (3), Four (4) and Five (5).

Instructions to students:

You must be able to demonstrate your understanding of the concepts learnt throughout this course. You are expected to use an academic approach to answer all components of this assessment. Using this approach, you will need to demonstrate that you have researched the relevant issues present. You are required to read widely and analyse the information that you gather, ensuring that it is applicable, evidence-based and up-to-date.

Assessment:

An increasing number of pregnant Australian women are overweight or obese. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics there has been a record increase in overweight and obese people in the Australian population. From 1995 to 2014/15 the percentage of obese women has increased from 19.1% to 27.0% while a further 28.4% of women were overweight in 2014-15 (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2016). Obese or overweight mothers have a higher risk of experiencing significant complications to themselves and their pregnancy. Care of the overweight and obese mother requires sensitivity when providing nutritional care and advice.

Provide a critical analysis and discussion regarding the role of the midwife in providing nutritional advice to pregnant women who are overweight or obese.

This should include:

A critical analysis of the social determinants of health that affect being overweight and obese.

A discussion of the importance of the provision of antenatal nutritional advice.

A critical exploration of the risks to the mother and fetus due to being overweight or obese during pregnancy.

Please Note:

A title page is required for this assignment - including your name, student number, due date, word count and coordinator's name.

An introduction, conclusion and reference list is also required this assessment.

A 10% leeway on either side of the word limit will be accepted. The word count will be measured form the first word of the introduction to the last word of the conclusion. The reference list is not included i the word count.

It is an expectation that the references used will be recent journal articles, five years or less since publication and reference books are to be no older than ten years, unless seminal works. Correct referencing is to be utilised throughout the body of work.

Referencing: American Psychological Association referencing style is a requirement. Poor referencing is unacceptable at this level of study.
