The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) just released an app to improve the quality of medical practices for preterm babies, intended as an educational tool for health workers working in Special Newborn Care Units. The ten modules use webinars, videos of routine procedures and practices, text materials for self reading, case studies and posters. Participants who pass the module are then eligible for participation in the skill training and simulation workshop which is done by a team of facilitators.
The entire package (self learning, skill building and simulation) is designed to be administered by state medical colleges to the staff of the Special Newborn Care Units under their supervision.
This educational tool has been contributed by neonatologists and nurses from all over India. It is currently available for Android only. An iOS version with local language options will be released soon.
