A routine physical examination is an integral part of postnatal care for newborn infants, repeated at 8 weeks of age. The UK National Screening Committee (NHS Newborn & Infant Physical Examination Programme) has established a core set of screening outcomes for the examinations identified as:

· Congenital heart disease
· Developmental hip dysplasia
· Congenital cataract
· Undescended testes

Routine examination also seeks to identify infants who are unwell or at risk of developing problems by recognition of clinical symptoms & signs and identification of risk factors.

Aims of the Course

This course provides clinically based training in all four of the components set out as screening priorities (NIPE, 2016-2017) by experienced experts in the relevant specialties. It seeks to maintain existing skills, inform & update practice, and also reflect the current relevant UK screening guidance. It will also provide an overview of common clinical problems presenting in infancy with an emphasis on the early recognition of infants at risk and their appropriate management.
