A routine physical examination is an integral part of postnatal care for new-born 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 and undescended testes.

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

Aims and Objectives

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 (i.e. ophthalmologists, orthopaedic surgeons, paediatric urologists, and neonatologists).

It seeks to maintain existing skills, inform and 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.

Content includes:
  • Principles of screening & the routine new-born
    and infant physical examination.
  • Congenital cataract & new-born eye examination.
  • Screening for developmental hip dysplasia.
  • Screening & detection of congenital heart disease.
  • Examination of the testes and groin.
  • Common abnormalities found on the routine newborn
  • Clinical problems presenting in infancy.
