The PGCert Enhanced Neonatal Care is unique to Wales and enables experienced practitioners to further enhance their clinical skills and underpin knowledge to provide increased holistic care to sick and preterm 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 on the Enhanced Neonatal Care PGCert 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.
Modules on the PGCert Enhanced Neonatal Care typically include:
