This is just a reminder about our Helping Babies breathe Master Trainer course, running at the RCPCH Offices in London on 20th and 21st February. There are still a few places left.
The course is designed to develop new HBB Master Trainers who will make a commitment to training global healthcare professionals in areas where neonatal mortality remains high. The curriculum provides a simple approach to the initial steps of neonatal assessment and resuscitation, with emphasis on The Golden Minute - the first minute after birth. The course is constantly evolving and now incorporates three main elements: education - using low-technology equipment to teach health care providers with varied skills and experience; science - ensuring that resuscitation techniques and implementation are based on the best evidence; implementation - providing tools and strategies to support practice change and quality improvement, ensuring that training can be sustainably embedded at local and national levels.
This training is suitable for doctors, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals. For further details and to book a place, please see:
