This essential handbook helps midwifery students to make the most from their time studying. It clearly explains the core learning skills you will need right from the start of the course, such as academic writing, placement learning and understanding theoretical concepts. It also introduces more advanced skills, such as reflection, research, evidence-based practice, writing a dissertation and complex decision making. It shows why these important skills are essential for you both to succeed at university and when you are a registered midwife.
- An accessible student-friendly guide specifically written for midwifery students
- Three midwifery students are followed throughout the book to show real issues that you may face during your studies
- Activities throughout help you test and develop your own learning skills

This clear and accessible book will be very helpful for midwifery students embarking on their course of study. The skills needed are fully described and examples are given throughout, to highlight the importance of continuous skill development both academically and whilst on placement. A very useful resource for all midwifery students.
