This programme is aimed to develop and advance the clinical skills of registered midwives to become competent practitioners in the complete (sometimes called 'discharge') physical examination and screening of the neonate.
An active learning format will empower you to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills in a variety of ways. These will include online lectures, tutorials and workshops in a simulated, virtual clinical environment, specified learning activities, and autonomous self-directed learning.
|NFQ Level 9
Applicants need a minimum of 2 years post registration experience in a postnatal/community or neonatal setting.
NB: Applicants must secure a Lead Clinical Mentor/Assessor within a hospital setting and work with them to undertake forty complete (discharge) examinations of the newborn. The forty examinations may be undertaken on the postnatal ward or possibly during a newborn clinic. The mentor must closely supervise the first 25 examinations, then appropriately monitor and assess the student's progress throughout the clinical component of the module. The mentor/assessor should then conduct three, in-depth assessments of the student's competency in the last three of the forty examinations before signing the student off as competent in all standards and elements of the complete examination of the newborn.
