Developed by the leading experts in neonatal simulation, this innovative new resource delivers neonatology health care providers and educators essential guidance on designing, developing, and implementing simulation-based neonatal education programs.
The early chapters cover learning theory, fundamentals of scenario design, and simulation and the Neonatal Resuscitation Program. The later chapters cover specific applications of simulation in neonatology and debriefing techniques.
The book walks the reader through scenario design, mannequins and task trainers, moulage, simulation techniques, virtual simulations, mannequin adaptations needed to conduct specific simulation procedures, debriefing methods, and more.
Step-by-step images walk the reader through adapting mannequins to simulate procedures and how to replicate body fluids and conditions commonly encountered in newborns.
With 225+ color images, as well as plenty of helpful boxes and tables throughout, the book will be useful to both novice and expert.
More than 30 chapters include

Dr Soghier has a profound interest in medical education for the care of newborns worldwide. She has travelled extensively to promote clinician education as a means of improving the health of newborns. Her research and education focus on application of novel technology in skill acquisition by pediatric trainees. She has spoken both nationally and internationally on medical education and neonatal research.
Beverley Robin, MD, MHPE, CHSE, FAAP
Beverley Robin, MD, MHPE, CHSE, FAAP, completed her medical training at the Medical College of Wisconsin. She went on to complete her pediatrics residency at Johns Hopkins University Hospital and her neonatology fellowship at the University of Chicago. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Rush University Medical Center and the director of the Rush Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship program. Her research interests include graduate medical education and the use of simulation in health professions education and training.
‘This superb book should be part of every pediatric training program and used to help teach many procedural skills as well as the Neonatal Resuscitation Program. In a time when pediatric resident trainees are getting very little education in procedures such as intubation and catheter placement, this book will help train future providers in these low-frequency, high-impact technical skills. It is concise, well written, and fills a void since there are no comparable books.'
