This course aims to produce knowledgeable and skilled professionals, equipping them to meet the requirements of a rapidly changing neonatal service. The course will prepare midwives to undertake the examination of the normal newborn baby as screening for abnormality.
The underlying normal and altered anatomy and physiology of major systems, normal morphology, common congenital and chromosomal abnormalities will form the background of the physical examination, whilst the sociological, behavioural and professional aspects complete the holistic process.
