Abstract

Perinatal experience has tremendous impact upon women, families and communities during a key point in time and lays the foundation for a healthy experience of motherhood. Perinatal outcomes for Pasifika women and neonates differ from those of their non-Pasifika counterparts. This is an understudied area in Australia despite the growth of this population group in recent years. This paucity of information was hampering the development of a targeted Pasifika midwifery clinic in the West Moreton Hospital and Health Service. A work-based project was undertaken to assess the best way in which to address the problem and to develop the necessary skills to do so. This process led to the development of a research project, an integrative literature review. This review, investigating perinatal outcomes for Pasifika women in Australia and highlighting gaps in the existing evidence, was then carried out. This thesis presents a discussion on the process of undertaking the work based project, the review of the literature and the outcomes of the process. Work-based projects and learning are discussed including the Master of Professional Studies program offered at UniSQ. The triple dividend of this project; student learning; organisational gain; and wider community gain are presented and evaluated along with recommendations for further research and future education.
