Description

This module is the fourth and final module for healthcare practitioners working full-time or part-time within the neonatal unit that upon completion will enable the practitioner to be recognised as qualified in speciality (QIS). The delivery of neonatal care to the intensive care infant is dependent both on the clinical skills of the practitioner and the development and maintenance of therapeutic relationships with the parents and the multi-disciplinary team through the use of appropriate communication and interpersonal skills.

This module facilitates the development of reflective skills in order to provide and analyse the care for an intensive care baby and family.

This module will enable students to:

- Develop and enhance their knowledge and specialist skills in intensive care practice

- Develop their knowledge and understanding of the impact of intensive care on the 'family'

- Explore and address contemporary issues in neonatology and neonatal care practice

PreRequisites

Students will have completed Applied Neonatal Pathophysiology, Neonatal Special and Transitional Care and High dependency neonatal care modules or equivalent.

Mode of Delivery
Online learning - NOTE: In the autumn term, due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, face-to-face teaching will be limited to clinically focused modules incorporating practical skills teaching. This will remain the case throughout the 2020/21 academic year, until social distancing requirements can be sufficiently relaxed to allow a greater proportion of on-site teaching.
