If you are a current registered midwife / neonatal nurse qualified at Level 6 or Level 7 to undertake the Examination of the Newborn (NIPE), this one-day CPD event will provide an update on the latest UK national screening responsibilities and standards.
This single CPD activity integrates a review of theoretical knowledge and practical application of the skills in examining the newborn baby being screened within 72 hours of birth for risk factors and abnormalities of the heart, eyes, hips and testes. Practitioners will be supported by expert midwifery/nursing clinicians and a paediatric consultant to further develop their skill-set in performing a holistic assessment of early neonatal health.
Attendance and engagement with the day will contribute 7.5hrs of participatory learning relevant to their scope of practice and reflecting principles of good practice in line with the Nursing and Midwifery (NMC) Code.
Core components of the CPD day include:
