Bliss teamed up with the Resuscitation Council UK to develop the Advanced Resuscitation of the Newborn Infant training course which was piloted at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
The two day course is for any health professional who might be present when a baby is born, and teaches how to expertly manage life-threatening emergencies that might happen on a neonatal unit. Babies who might benefit from professionals being trained in this way include those who are born early, sick or with congenital abnormalities.
Since the course launched in 2013 over 120 senior doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners have been trained. In 2016 the course will be offered in even more locations including London, Plymouth, Manchester and Middlesbrough.
