The World Health Organization in collaboration with partners around the world has developed the Essential Newborn Care Course (ENCC). The material provides the foundation for the essential care of every newborn: immediate care at birth, resuscitation when needed, breast milk feeding, thermal care, prevention of infection, recognition and response to danger signs.
The course is aligned with WHO quality standards for maternal and newborn health, small and sick newborns care, with focus on the rights of newborns, nurturing care, Point of Care Quality Improvement (POCQI) , and strengthened links to care in the community.
This course is part of a set of resources for improving care of newborns, such as WHO Human Resource Strategies for improving neonatal care, WHO standards for improving the quality of care for maternal and newborn health, small and sick newborns in health facilities.
This one day program will introduce the concepts of ENC and digital learning as well as practice the hands-on skills needed to teach the course.
What to expect:
- Educational methodologies incorporate active learning and structured simulations.
- The materials integrate existing newborn courses from around the world such as WHO Early Essential Newborn Care coaching, as well as Helping Babies Breathe and Helping Babies Survive, which have been updated and aligned with WHO guidelines.
