Neonatal nurses are at the forefront of small and sick newborn care. They make a profound difference in the lives of newborns and their families. Yet, in low resourced countries, especially sub-Saharan Africa nurse lack the opportunity for specialized education/training, access to evidence-based resources, and networking with other health professionals.
Join COINN for the virtual launch of the Community of Neonatal Nursing Practice – a resource hub for those interested in improving neonatal/family health outcomes. COINN’s CoNP is a place to share best practices, ask questions of experts, discuss challenges and opportunities in neonatal care. Come join the CoNP.
This webinar will:
1. Describe what a CoNP is.
2. Outline why it is needed for neonatal nurses.
3. Discuss how people can get involved.
