According to the five year blueprint for Nursing Education in Queensland (Board of Nursing Studies, 1993) midwifery is to be moved into the tertiary sector. In 1994 Queensland University of Technology became the second Queensland university to initiate a tertiary-based midwifery program. As part of the approach to teaching a clinical log was developed, with a specific focus on the clinical practice aspect of the students learning, while recognising that clinical practice and theory are interwoven in reality. It was intended to be a portable, easily understood adjunct to the learning of student midwives in a new Graduate Diploma in Nursing (midwifery) course.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
