Armstrong Medical hosts neonatal event
Armstrong Medical hosted a two-day event focused on neonates at its facilities in Coleraine, Northern Ireland on 29-30 November. Sixteen hospitals from across the UK and Ireland were represented, along with doctors and nursing staff from Norway and Romania.
The NeoFlow Workshop gave neonatal healthcare professionals the opportunity to meet the Armstrong Medical team, tour the facilities and share feedback on products and best practices. Day one, entitled 'Understanding respiratory care challenges', provided the Armstrong Medical team with the opportunity to better understand the needs and challenges healthcare professionals face in delivering neonatal care.
Day two was dedicated to the delivery of advanced communication skills training: an interactive skills workshop focused on supporting professionals to develop communication strategies for the effective delivery of difficult and emotional information in stressful situations. The training was facilitated by Dr Lisa Kauffman, Consultant Community Paediatrician with a special interest in palliative care, along with Nicola Fitzmaurice, Deputy Head of Nursing, Corporate Nursing at Birmingham Women and Children's Hospital, and actor Hayley Fairclough.
Hospitals represented at the event included Liverpool Women's Hospital, QMC Nottingham University Hospital, The Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital, Altnagelvin Hospital and Royal Stoke University Hospital.
