City, University of London is doing this study day in collaboration with Barts Health NHS trust.
This neonatal ventilation study is an interactive hands on study day is suitable for neonatal/paediatric trainees, Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners or neonatal nurses who would like a theoretical and practical guide on current ventilation strategies in neonatal clinical practice. Senior nurses and doctors who want a refresher course on current practice of neonatal ventilation are encouraged to apply. The day will include a combination of lectures, scenario based workshops and hands on practical workshop. Lectures and workshops will be delivered by senior neonatal consultants.
The course will cover the following topics:
Neonatal respiratory Physiology
Physiology of common neonatal respiratory disease
Clinical management of common neonatal respiratory conditions including invasive and non-invasive ventilation strategies
Problem based learning exercise Hands on practical workshop
Neonatal nurses, junior doctors, senior paediatric doctors and nurses working within paediatric and neonatal settings.
Face to face lectures
Hands on practical workshops
Scenario based learning and assessment workshops
