Neonatal High Dependency Care
This module explores the specialist knowledge and specialist clinical practices required to underpin the delivery of special and high dependency neonatal nursing care. The sessions will provide a platform for the critical analysis of assessment, planning, delivery and evaluation of care of the sick and/or premature neonate. Connections between specialist clinical practice and the altered anatomy and physiology of the sick and/or premature neonate will be considered, with reference to aspects of embryology.
Current developments in neonatal nursing will be considered and the professional dimensions of the professional role of the nurse within special and high dependency neonatal care will be explored.
This module will utilise the student’s personal experience to promote evidenced based care and enhance family centred care within the clinical areas delivering special and high dependency neonatal care.
