Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) -for Current Clinical Providers- St Catharines
Thursday, 23 March 2017 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
About the Program
Training in the Neonatal Resuscitation Program is a three-step process including:
(1) A self-directed learning component,
(2) Successful completion of an on-line knowledge exam, and
(3) Attendance at a day-long classroom session for hands-on skill development, practice, and testing.
Our NRP instructors are a combination of nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, and midwives with substantial newborn care experience.
During our NRP courses, participants learn and work together as members of a neonatal resuscitation team. All participants must learn and practice in the various roles of a neonatal resuscitation team.
To best meet the learning needs of our course participants, the Simulation and Outreach Program offers NRP courses according to a participant's experience level and current clinical role. Courses will be delivered to maximize learning according to whether participants are New Providers/Student Providers or Current Clinical Providers.
This course is for Current Clinical Providers. It will be targeted specifically to the learning needs of healthcare professionals who currently provide newborn resuscitation as part of their clinical responsibilities, on a regular and on-going basis.
