Neonatal practitioner training modules

An initiative by the neonatal nutrition network for Sub–Saharan Africa

Although neonatal deaths are the leading cause of deaths among under 5’s globally, formal training for healthcare workers in the hospital-based management of small and sick neonates is often inadequate. We have developed a 14-module Neonatal Care Training Course (NCTC) that includes modules on neonatal sepsis, assessment and immediate care of the sick newborn and newborn feeding. This course is designed to be accessible and useful to all working with neonates in low-resource settings.

National Neonatal Palliative Care Project

The National Neonatal Palliative Care Project aims to improve complex & palliative care, ensuring babies and their families receive equitable consistent care and information regarding services focusing on 3 neonatal networks, a total of 52 neonatal units in the first instance  (NWNODN, SWODN & Y&HODN).
