Completion of the course enables healthcare professionals such as midwives, nurses, neonatal nurses and community specialist staff to competently undertake a skilled examination of the newborn that meets the requirements of the National Screening Committee Standards (2008) and NICE Guidelines (2006). The module aims to equip practitioners with underpinning theoretical knowledge to support the holistic assessment of the newborn in clinical practice.
This module is offered at Level 6 and Level 7 study. Both are studied on the same day.
Level 6 study assures employers of a registrant that is capable of undertaking the enhanced responsibility of the assessment in clinical practice. Level 7 study will be considered towards scholarly progression to a Masters qualification.
