Share in first-hand experience
Hear case study presentations from experienced workshop leaders who have successfully implemented a neonatal home phototherapy service:
Richard studied medicine at the University of Southampton before embarking on his training in paediatrics in England, Wales, Scotland and Canada before returning to the Hammersmith Hospital in London and finally settling in Birmingham. Richard has wide interests in neonatal medicine, medical education, healthcare ethics and law and has authored a best-selling neonatal textbook.
Richard has long been interested in supporting the early discharge of infants from hospital care into the community which naturally led to developing the Home Phototherapy Programme in Birmingham. This has proved a great success with both parents and staff and is set to become a normal pathway for managing jaundice in otherwise well near-term new-borns in the two major neonatal intensive care units in Birmingham.
