...If not, why not?!

SMNET Plus! is currently hosting one of our frequent 'practice documentation' sessions. Run over the course of a week, this feature is designed to help students (and students-to-be!) to practice writing hospital notes, so that when you are out on placement, it comes easily and quickly. Accurate, professional record keeping can be a difficult skill to master, and as a midwife you need to be able to do it at the same time as caring for the woman and holding conversation. As they say, practice makes perfect!

This weeks scenario features around Domestic Abuse Awareness Month, and the challenges that hand-held notes provide in delicate situations.

Head on over to SMNET Plus! now to take part: http://www.studentmidwife.net/fob/practice-documentation-08-10-14.107134/#post-1526376 :yes:
