19NESIM042 - Assessment of Mothers, Newborns, and Children for Home Visiting Services

Description

Improving birth, infant, and maternal health outcomes—particularly among socio-economically disadvantaged families—is an important health goal of the nation. Healthy births, in turn, begin with and reflect the health, well-being, and resources of mothers and families—including having adequate access to supportive services and, from the prenatal period on, education to promote positive parenting, health behaviors, and home environments. Home visiting services can provide support to parents and empower them so that they, in turn, provide a positive environment during their child’s critical early years. Health and welfare assessments provided by these services have identified home visits as a method to improve health outcomes and healthcare use of pregnant women and their newborns, decrease the costs of medical care during pregnancy and delivery over the first year of a child’s life, and provide early childhood interventions that offer the greatest potential for long term change.

This course is designed to hone maternal/child home visiting skills for learners or healthcare practitioners in need of an assessment refresher course to increase the screening, interventions, and quality of care they provide to their patients.

This one-day course is split into two main concentrations. In the morning, the focus is on legal risks, newborn and pediatric assessments, infant health complications, breastfeeding, and putting it all together using simulation. In the afternoon, the focus is on pregnancy complications, maternal postpartum assessment, and putting it all together using simulation and Mursion for difficult communication skills. Attend the morning only, afternoon only, or the full day!
