This course focuses on theories, issues, and trends related to the care of the childbearing family. Pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum are viewed as normal life processes with family members as partners in care. The roles of the nurse are considered in relation to family-centred care and primary health care with an emphasis on the determinants of health and premature, preventive, and curative services.
