Designed to meet the needs of nursing and midwifery staff caring for a special and high dependency infant in the Neonatal unit, this module can be combined with the Neonatal intensive care module to lead to the award of Specialist Neonatal Practice.

You will explore Neonatal practice with colleagues from many units in the region, engaging in discussion and debate to understand the complexities and challenges caring for an infant receiving special and high dependency care and their family.

You will gain an understanding of the specialist needs of infants in Neonatal units including thermoregulation, nutrition, pain management, palliative care, infection control and discharge and transfer to neighbouring units or home. You will also understand the physiological changes as an infant adapts to extra uterine life, and how problems with this transition lead to infants requiring your care.
