Aboriginal Maternal and Infant Care (AMIC) Specialisation

Location: Adelaide City (and various regional sites)

The AMIC Specialisation units enable the graduates of the program to extend their scope of practice as registered practice of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner to include knowledge, skills, and attitudes to provide competent antenatal and postnatal care, support childbirth within a registered birthing organisation, and provide support and strategies for sexual health for women.

An AMIC Practitioner provides clinical and associated care within a team environment with a midwife and/or medical practitioner, advocate for clients, undertakes a broad spectrum of health care, and collaborates alongside other health care professionals to provide culturally safe care associated with pregnancy and childbirth for Aboriginal clients and their families. The AMIC graduate can be employed in the community-controlled sector, primary health units, or mainstream services to undertake programs specific to pregnancy, childbirth and early infant care.

The prerequisite qualification for AMIC specialisation competency units is Certificate IV in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care Practice.
