Caritas Baby Hospital hosted the Neonatal Resuscitation Program “NRP” training August 3rd and 4th, which was implemented by the Juzour for Health and Social Development.
Developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Neonatal Resuscitation Program course conveys an evidence-based approach to care of the newborn at birth and facilitates effective team-based care for healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery. NRP utilizes a blended learning approach, which includes online or written testing and hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focus on critical leadership, communication, and team-work skills.
About this training, NRP instructor and neonatologist at Caritas Baby Hospital, Dr. Amal Fawadleh, said, “I was pleased to participate in this training because of its importance in saving the lives of many babies.” Fawadleh added, “The first minutes after birth are essential to resuscitating the child, which will also improve their wellbeing.”
Twenty five doctors and nurses from Caritas Baby Hospital, the Holy Family Hospital, Saint Joseph Hospital, Beit Jala Government Hospital, Jericho Government Hospital and Al Ahli Hospital who deal directly with newborns in delivery rooms or health facilities participated in this training.
In turn, Director of Patient Safety and Quality Department at Caritas Baby Hospital said, "This training is a golden opportunity to update the medical and nursing staff's information on resuscitation of newborns and premature infants, thus contributing to achieving excellent clinical outcomes."
