How is HBB different than NRP?
While both HBB and NRP are based on the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) guidelines, they are designed for vastly different care environments, especially with respect to resources. The HBB curriculum utilizes a unique educational methodology and is specifically designed for environments where human and technical resources are limited. For a more detailed overview of the differences between HBB and NRP, visit the HBB program page.
The use of highly pictorial educational resources and low-cost, purpose-built simulators makes the HBS suite very accessible to audiences in limited-resource areas. Since 2010, HBS programs have equipped more than 400,000 health care providers in 80 countries with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to provide newborns with the high-quality care they need to survive and thrive.
Each HBS program includes a unique package of learning materials to assist those in their efforts to plan and implement sustainable HBB, ECEB, ECSB and QI activities around the world. All program materials are available for free access and download via the AAP's International Resources website.
