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.
Roelle trained at Birmingham city university and qualified as an adult nurse in 2012. She commenced her first nursing post as a staff nurse in acute adult medicine until she moved to neonatal care in 2014.
Roelle went back to university in 2017 to study neonatal intensive care and on commencement took a band 6 post as neonatal outreach sister.
After working a split role across the neonatal unit and community and gaining experience for a further for 3 years, in February 2021 Roelle commenced a secondment at University hospitals Birmingham within neonatal care as the lead nurse for the neonatal community outreach team and inpatient transitional care unit which is the current role that she is in.
