Information regarding fertility and all stages of pregnancy and childbearing is discussed throughout the course. Knowledge regarding client resources, needs, risk factors, and health practices as related to client population is explored. Population health does not limit the clients' defining characteristics to only identified ethnicity or geographic area; clients may be members of more than one population. Introducing population health through the unfolding case study method stimulates a more thorough exploration of differing populations the student may not generally encounter. © 2020 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
