We are pleased to bring you the Non-Credit Bearing Holistic Examination of the Newborn workshop – as a new study day. Please see below for dates, booking and relevant information.  

About the workshop

The Holistic examination of the Newborn course will provide practitioners with a blended learning experience, based on the body systems, applying theory to the practical elements of the Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE).

About the Course

The course is delivered via a blended approach, with expert input from both NIPE practitioners and Neonatologists. Sessions will be supported by case studies from clinical practice and where applicable simulation will be integrated into sessions and used to facilitate formative feedforward. A systems based approach is utilised to develop relevant knowledge in relation to the NIPE examination.

This is a 20 credit course available to study at level 6 (undergraduate) or level 7 (postgraduate).

Course Aims

The aim of the module is to equip students with advanced knowledge and skills to enable further development of their practice to include a comprehensive, supportive, and holistic approach to the physical examination of the neonate and become qualified NIPE practitioners.

About you
