Critically analyse, appraise and evaluate the concept of neonatal special and transitional care and the needs of the infant and their family in a holistic manner
Comprising theoretical and practical components you’ll critically analyse, appraise and evaluate the concept of neonatal special and transitional care and the needs of the infant and their family in a holistic manner.
Using a critical approach to contemporary evidence, you’ll consider and analyse nursing and medical interventions that may be used in the special or transitional care setting to ascertain appropriateness, effectiveness and best practice.
Back in your clinical setting, you’ll hone your skills in patient assessment, interventions and transitional care. You’ll be encouraged to review the provision of special and transitional care in the light of supporting evidence, and to critically reflect on current practice.
