Helping Babies Breathe: Neonatal Resuscitative Teaching to Midwives in Ghana, West Africa

The American Academy of Pediatrics designed Helping Babies Breathe (HBB), an educational program for low-resource areas. This project implemented a modified HBB program to teach neonatal resuscitation skills to four midwives in rural Ghana. The midwives averaged pre-test scores of (a) 39.2%, (b) 37.5% and post test scores of (a) 71.4%, (b) 83.7%. This train-the-trainer framework has resulted in one midwife continuing the teaching to hospitals in the region.

The Experience of Childbirth at a Midwife-Run Birth Center

There are several factors that influence a woman’s birth experience. A large portion of these factors is the preparation that she takes for the event of labor. This study focuses on both the motivation for and experience of labor at a midwife-run birth center. The data collected provides more information to better inform the field of labor and delivery on this population’s experience. The findings can be applied both within the hospital and outside of the hospital setting.

The United States is behind the rest of the developed world in educating adolescents about the normalcies and risks of sex. Sex and intimacy is a delicate subject in which educators, parents, and pastors often feel uncomfortable teaching; they often try and place the responsibility of sexual health education elsewhere.

Abastract: The mean age of the nursing workforce has increased over the last 25 years and as a result a nursing shortage is developing because these nurses are now retirement age. Precepting in a clinical setting has become a necessary method for orientation of graduate nurses with preceptors not receiving necessary training or compensation. After completion of a successful orientation it is important to give new graduate nurses continued support and encouragement while providing a safe learning environment.
