The Bliss baby report 2015 highlighted a lot of issues around staffing in neonatal units, with many neonatal units telling Bliss that they are “overstretched, understaffed and being pushed beyond their capacity”. Supported by Bliss, this intensive workshop offers practical advice, guidance and case studies on how neonatal units can address these challenges with innovative workforce solutions.
Many attendees to this event completed an evaluation form, and we are pleased to share with you some of the comments made about this day:
