Enhanced Neonatal Care
This programme is unique to Wales and enables experienced practitioners to further enhance their clinical skills and underpinning knowledge to provide increased holistic care to sick and preterm neonates. The course enables staff to improve their skills within this specialised clinical environment which facilitates improved patient care and increased staff knowledge and competence.
Applicants must be qualified in speciality with experience of caring for neonates.
The clinical staff in neonatal units within the All Wales Neonatal Network (AWNN), deliver an in-house programme of study known as the NEST programme (Neonatal Enhanced Skills Training programme). The modules enable students to enhance their knowledge and understanding, as well as clinical skills, in areas such as venepuncture and blood gas analysis. Underpinning theory and knowledge pertinent to the care of neonates is demonstrated through the development of a portfolio of evidence and accompanying narrative.
