Conference Details:

Friday, May 3rd:  

This class is Full.  You can email to get put on a wait list. 

9am to 5pm ~~ Neonatal Resuscitation in a Community Based Setting taught by Julie Moon!

This is a full day in depth course for neonatal resuscitation. We begin by creating a safe space for
feelings like fear, grief or tension, and work towards creating curiosity and community.
Starting with skills of ventilation and ending with emergency IV treatment, each learner will
have plenty of hands-on practice. All aspects of NRP to include introduction of T-Piece
resuscitators and why they matter, EMS collaboration and transfer scenarios, trauma based
debriefing, and resuscitation in place. The afternoon is spent in drill scenarios where
learners rotate roles, demonstrate skills, build confidence and reflect on team performance.
Individual practice needs are developed and assessed with community focus. Equipment,
drills and setups unique to community birth settings drive the course. Our goal is for each
learner to feel confident with both ventilation and advanced skills, and we have found this
takes time to achieve.
