Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the cultural basis to promote the physiology of pregnancy, childbirth and the centrality of the woman, couple and newborn, with a holistic approach.
We will go through the history and the evolution of obstetric psycho-prophylaxis, in Europe and in Italy, from its beginning to the present day, analysing how methodologies and objectives have changed.
The student will be provided with tools that will guide him in personalized assistance to the woman, with updated information based on efficacy tests, WHO / UNICEF's guidelines and recommendations. Moreover the benefits of the accompanying courses at birth will be explained.
The course aims to prepare the student to plan and conduct a preparation course at birth, as a promoter of the health of mother and child. The main purpose of the course is to put the mother back to the center with her needs, resources and skills, in order to demyricise the birth, protecting and supporting breastfeeding. During the course we will talk about how to identify and prevent post-partum depression.
Within a view to global and ongoing assistance, the student will be encouraged to learn about the social welfare of the area in which it operates, facilitating access to the Birth Points to women. The student will learn how to provide adequate support, during women's return home after childbirth. During the course we will talk about the importance of networking with other operators in private and public services and clinics.

Tirocinio professionalizzante

Durante l'esperienza di tirocinio la supervisione dello studente è garantita da un sistema di tutorato articolato su 2 o 3 livelli e, di norma, assunto da operatori dello stesso profilo professionale degli studenti:

Tutor professionale con competenze avanzate sia pedagogiche che professionali; collabora all'organizzazione e gestione dei tirocini, alla progettazione e conduzione di laboratori di formazione professionale. Seleziona le opportunità formative, integra l'esperienza pratica con la teoria appresa, presidia in particolare le prime fasi di apprendimento di un intervento o di una competenza. Si occupa dei processi di apprendimento degli studenti in difficoltà, facilita i processi di valutazione dell'apprendimento in tirocinio e tiene i rapporti con le sedi di tirocinio. I Tutor Professionali sono scelti in accordo con le strutture sanitarie presso cui si svolge l'attività formativa e assegnati con incarichi triennali alla struttura didattica.

Guida di Tirocinio/tutor clinico è l'operatore che guida lo studente nella sede di tirocinio mentre svolge le sue normali attività lavorative. E' garante della sicurezza dello studente e degli utenti, vigila affinché gli utenti ricevano una prestazione di qualità anche quando essa venga delegata agli studenti, si assicura che gli stessi siano informati e diano il loro consenso ad essere assistiti da uno studente.
Al termine di ciascun anno di corso viene effettuata una valutazione certificativa per accertare i livelli raggiunti dallo studente nello sviluppo delle competenze professionali attese.
