Dealing with difficult neonatal situations can be stressful and daunting, particularly for trainees and staff members new to the clinical environment. It is important that trainees who start working on a neonatal unit quickly develop the necessary clinical competencies to maximise patient safety. Skills can be improved by repetitive learning or practice and simulation has the advantage of accelerating the learning curve by repetitive practice. This course is aimed at all levels of Neonatal Care teams.
