This educational video shows important features of a home visit focusing on the care and assessment of a newborn. While the primary audience is intended to be frontline health workers in the developing world, it is used worldwide to educate health care providers so that they can provide better care for newborns and help save lives.
Home visits, in the first week after birth, are a key intervention in protecting the health of young babies. It is important that health workers learn how to best conduct these visits so that they are able to find problems, support the mother and family, and teach them how to identify newborn problems early. Early recognition of newborn problems can ensure that these vulnerable babies are taken to a health facility in time to save their lives.
This video follows evidence-based guidelines and has been reviewed by medical professionals.
