Advancing your Neonatal Outreach Service
This NHS networking day will provide you with the opportunity to confront the challenges that you encounter every day and help you strategize effective solutions which you can implement to develop your neonatal outreach service. Share your collective outreach experiences to tackle the barriers of funding, incorporate methods of early family integration and maximise working within an MDT. This unique chance to hear guidance will help to drive forward the development of your outreach service and equip you with a new perspective.
The priority of all NHS Neonatal outreach services is to deliver the best care to babies and their parents and this one-day networking opportunity will focus on enhancing the standards of your neonatal outreach care. Take one day out to consider the challenges of preparing babies for home, discover new techniques to incorporate the family earlier and spark new ideas for funding. Throughout the day, you will learn how to overcome the challenges of working with your MDT to ensure that you are empowered with the knowledge you need to improve work culture, achieve the best care for neonates and enhance parent experience.
Confirm your place and take full advantage of this networking opportunity to advance your knowledge in:
- Preparing babies for home and empowering parents to take responsibility
- Developing an outreach service that will increase parent’s confidence and competence
- Building business cases and obtaining funding for your neonatal outreach service
- Improving communication and collaboration in your neonatal multi-disciplinary team
- Taking the next step to ensure the continual development of your neonatal outreach service
- Supporting oxygen therapy and weening methods
This focussed neonatal NHS conference will equip you with powerful and practical strategies in order to enable you to return to your role with the knowledge and motivation to progress neonatal outreach. Utilise this opportunity to network with other:
- Neonatal Matrons, Sisters, Mangers and Service Leads
- Neonatal Clinical Leads and Consultants
