Course Overview

This module is designed for registered nurses and midwives working in a neonatal unit who wish to develop their intensive care skills. The module encompasses a high level of face-to face teaching to enable the student to understand why neonates may require intensive care and help to develop problem solving skills in the management of sick infants.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
