In this Preventative Healthcare for the Newborn Baby offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado System, you will learn some medical interventions and skills to keep newborns healthy in the days and weeks after they have been born.
We’ll tell you about medicines like Vitamin K and erythromycin and how they can prevent serious illnesses. We’ll also introduce screening tests like hearing screening and newborn blood screening that help to make sure that babies are set up for success right from the start.
But we will start off by talking about jaundice, looking at the simple ways to identify and treat this common presentation and prevent any harm to babies.
A newborn baby is an amazing beautiful life filled with hope.
There is so much that goes into making sure that babies are born healthy, and so much more to think about after they are born. Whether you are in the health care field, or even a parent, this course is the perfect educational opportunity for you to keep newborn babies healthy in the days and weeks after they are born!
