Keeping babies with their mothers after birth is an undisputed national goal. Neonatal Transitional Care is an increasingly important concept whereby babies with additional care requirements are supported to stay with their mothers as opposed to being admitted to a neonatal unit. Implementing Transitional Care has the potential to prevent thousands of avoidable neonatal admissions, reduce length of stay and prevent readmissions through parental empowerment and proactive risk identification.

The Learn Sharen Care Initiative is a team made up of midwives, doctors and neonatal consultants all keen to provide Transitional Care training to as many midwives as possible. We have been delivering Neonatal Transitional Care Study Days for over 5 years, equipping you with all the knowledge and skills you need to keep these babies safe.

The conference would be suitable for Midwifes, midwifery support staff and nursery nurses.

Our next one day virtual study day will be 19th June 2024. Keep an eye out for face-to-face study days later this year!”
