Summary

This concise guide offers a comprehensive step-by-step framework for midwifery students to learn about all aspects of the newborn infant physical examination (NIPE), a screening assessment completed on all babies between 6 and 72 hours of age.

The Student Guide to the Newborn Infant Physical Examination encourages the reader to approach the examination in a system-based format, with case studies and practice tips to support learning.

The book offers:

• Evidence-based, well-illustrated assessment tools, which take into account the national screening committee standards, and is written by authors with both academic and clinical experience;

• A clear direction on how to perform the NIPE in practice while exploring the wider context of screening in healthcare today;

• Coverage of the changing role of the midwife, and the importance of understanding the whole context of the mother’s care, health promotion and starting the practitioner-parent conversation.

The Student Guide to the Newborn Infant Physical Examination is a core text for all pre-registration midwifery students and a useful resource for qualified midwives, neonatal nurses and practice nurses.
