Newborn and Infant Physical Examination e-learning
"The NIPE e-learning is a fantastic resource and I urge every health professional responsible for carrying out the NIPE check to visit it regularly to re-fresh." Samantha Pocklington, Midwife
The NHS Newborn and Infant Physical Examination e-learning module is a free training resource for everyone who delivers physical examination screening in the NHS in England. It covers the 4 screening elements of the physical examination: heart, hips, eyes and testes, as well as the NIPE standards and pathways. As an adjunct to formal training, the module uses film and animation to illustrate best practice. The resource was thoroughly piloted and very well received.
The module was developed by PHE Screening with the assistance of leading neonatologists, midwives, GPs, and representatives of Royal College of General Practitioners, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and the Royal College of Midwives.
A certificate is provided on completion. Those managing training locally will be able to access a report of numbers completed in each trust/university.
