Description

This module is the third of four modules for healthcare practitioners working full-time or part-time within the neonatal unit that will enable the practitioner to be recognised as qualified in speciality (QIS). The delivery of neonatal care to the high dependency 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 a high dependency baby and family.

This module will enable students to:

- Develop and enhance their knowledge and specialist skills in high dependency care practice.

- Develop their knowledge and understanding of the impact of high dependency on the family.

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