Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article discusses the project plan following
the Neonatal Nurses Association/Dra¨ger Education
Scholarship award to the author in 2009. The
proposal is for the development of a Learning tool:
‘Knowledge for Neonatal Nursing Practice’, a webbased,
interactive resource that guides the learner
through a range of topics related to neonatal care,
by suggested reading and enquiry in conjunction
with self-testing quizzes. The focus is on essential
knowledge for neonatal nursing care for both the
healthy and high-risk/sick neonate and family in
the hospital setting aimed at health professionals
in this field. The author discusses the background
to the project in relation to neonatal healthcare
and higher education, the aims, target audience
and outlines the content and structure of the tool.
