This module will enable students to competently undertake a full physical examination of the newborn.
This will be from a holistic perspective, critically appraising the relevant antenatal and intrapartum factors in relation to contemporary literature and professional responsibilities. This will be in accordance with local and national policy, as well as the current standards of the Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE) Screening Committee, Public Health England.
Upon completion of this NIPE module, students will have honed the skills to conduct newborn examinations. They will have developed the knowledge to place them in the context of care needs. They will have gained vital experience, allowing them to understand and communicate those needs.
This module can be taken as part of a masters pathway in the Health Sciences Open Award.
