e-Learning for Healthcare
This e-learning programme is aimed at midwifery and ambulance personnel to support the treatment plan for newborn babies who are, or have the potential to become, unwell following delivery in a community setting. The resources are designed to equip maternity and emergency teams with the knowledge required to extend care beyond the first minutes after birth, up to and including handover to the neonatal team.
The programme consists of four e-learning sessions and covers several clinical scenarios from normal variation to significant illness.
It is expected that by completing all four sessions within this programme, you will be able to:
- Recognise normal and abnormal infant colour (anaemia and cyanosis)
- Recognise normal and abnormal feeding patterns and abdominal signs
- Support an infant born unexpectedly preterm
- Support a baby born in an unexpectedly poor condition
Each session will cover identification, management including stabilisation and communication, and transfer to a neonatal unit.
This programme is the result of a collaboration between Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare, The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It was also made possible through the support of Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, as part of a successful bid from HEE.
All the resources for this programme have been written by subject specialists and experts in this field.
