Our one-day workshop, developed under the auspices of the Resuscitation Council (UK), will give you clear, practical instruction in airway support for babies at birth. It will also look at the theoretical background of airway support, to illustrate its importance in newborn resuscitation.
There's currently a limited level of practical skills in airway control among the people most frequently called upon to make the first response to the need.
Our course gives first responders the background knowledge and skills to competently approach the management of resuscitation of newborn infants during their first ten to 20 minutes. It does this by concentrating on effective teaching of practical airway management and ventilatory support.
If you require NHS contract funding for this course, please speak to your manager before applying.
The NLS provider course is designed for healthcare professionals involved in deliveries and care of newborns. This includes both junior and senior medical and nursing staff, midwives, paramedics and resuscitation officers.
Dates for this module will be set for 2016/7 in due course.

The Admissions team will send you an email alert once dates are released.
