Full course description

ASM Block 4

Course Description: This course is designed to introduce students to risk screening as it relates to well-person care. Students will use a wide variety of web-based sources to understand risk assessment as it relates to screening for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), cancer, and other health issues. Students are introduced to current guidelines in sexual and reproductive healthcare by reviewing the most recent, evidence-based publications released by national health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and the National Cancer Institute. This course uses current research in midwifery and obstetrics to broaden the student’s understanding of the  NARM skills and MEAC essential competencies learned under clinical supervision.
