NURS 372  Family-Centred Maternal and Newborn Nursing Care  Units: 3.00  

This course provides an introduction to maternal and newborn nursing care using a family-centred approach. Perinatal nursing focuses on care provided throughout the childbearing continuum from preconception, pregnancy, labour, birth, and postpartum period. Newborn nursing focuses on care of the infant during the normal transition to extrauterine life in the first 28 days. Health promotion and health challenges that present during the maternal and newborn period will be explored. Using a family-centred approach, a systems-based conceptualization is used to examine social, psychological and cultural influences on the family. Evidence-informed care and a collaborative approach continue to be emphasized in discussing nursing interventions and responsibilities. 3 hour lecture per week.
