Halls of knowledge

Following on UENPS’ mission to promote knowledge and achieve standards of care for every newborn, a division named UENPS Halls Knowledge has been established. The aim of this new structure is to gather all the experience and cultural activities developed throughout the years.

All the teaching and cultural activities carried out or under development were grouped in one place:
Europe-wide survey
Webinars

Survey on Delivery Room resuscitation in Europe

AIMS

• To assess the current practice and the quality of care of term and preterm newborns in the DRs among UENPS members and friends
• To identify common points, differences and trends
• To give back to participating Countries precise information on delivery assistance in their own DRs, identifying strengths and weaknesses
• To organize specific training courses or webinars on neonatal resuscitation, free of charge, for those Countries or Institutions that are interested in improving
• To provide the starting point for a European collaborative network

AUTHORS

The initiative is a cooperation between UENPS and the Italian Society of Neonatology (SIN) which designed the survey and provided its best experts who will analyse the results:

DESCRIPTION

• The questionnaire is designed following the classic stages of neonatal resuscitation, including organizational (personnel and equipment) and epidemiological aspects
• It is addressed to Birth Centres of any level of perinatal care with at least 1.000 deliveries per year
• For Countries with many Birth Centres (i.e. Russia) a statistical support will be provided to help in choosing a representative sample
• Birth Centers will need about 30 minutes to complete the questionnaire
• The data provided by each hospital will be covered under the privacy policy of UENPS Society; it will be used to draw up results, and then it will be made anonymous before publication

SESSION

• General information; Before birth (equipment, resuscitation team, briefing); UC management; Temperature; Airways; Ventilation; Circulation; Medication; Ethics; Documentation (after resuscitation); Education; Additional questions for Centres who care for infants with GA <33 weeks

Conclusion:

• UENPS aims to help in improving National and European standards of neonatal care, through its outreach education “philosophy”
• UENPS considers important to share best practice
• The results of the Survey will be presented at next UENPS International Conference in Rome, November 18-21, 2020
• All the Birth Centers that will support the survey will have a free registration to the Congress for one of the staff members

Webinars

Each year will be dedicated to a hot topic in neonatology. An agreement for technical support with Unitelma Sapienza University is being drawn up. The lessons will be recorded in Rome and will be interactive with Question & Answer sessions. 2020 will speak about Respiratory Care. Calendar available soon.
