NESTT: Neonatal Emergencies Simulation Team Training   

The NESTT course is a multi-professional team training course for healthcare providers working with sick neonates.

The course focuses on gaining insight into a clinician’s own role within their usual team and uses simulation to explore human factors and the principles of CRM (Crisis Resource Management) to reduce human error and improve team performance.

Case scenarios are based on actual transfers from London NTS and the course is facilitated by experienced faculty. Participants will be able to gain insights into teamwork, human factors and CRM.
