Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) has been designed by the American Academy of Paediatrics and American Heart Association to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.
This course is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation. It has been designed for health care professionals involved in any aspect of neonatal resuscitation, including physicians, nurses, advanced practice nurses, nurse midwives, licensed midwives, respiratory care practitioners, and other healthcare professionals who provide direct care during neonatal resuscitation.
In the classroom, students engage in Instructor-led power point presentation with video simulation and learning stations. Students work with an NRP Instructor to complete skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written multiple choice exam.
The course will follow the Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation, 6th Edition, a book published by the American Academy of Paediatrics and American Heart Association. The text is packaged with a companion DVD-ROM that brings higher levels of interactivity to the learning process.
Simulation: A Major Component
Simulation is an essential component of the NRP educational training program, incorporating teamwork, effective communication, clinical skills practice, and constructive debriefing. The 6th Edition of the NRP focuses on the acquisition of these essential cognitive, technical, and behavioural skills using simulation with the goal of improving
neonatal patient care.
