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.

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.
