This Care of the Newborn Training Guide is based on the Care of the Newborn Reference Manual. If possible, each trainer and each participant should be given a copy of the Reference Manual for use during the training and to keep afterwards. This Training Guide is for trainers and can be used for both pre-service and in-service programs. It contains training and assessment materials in six modules that correspond to the six chapters of the Reference Manual. Each module of the Training Guide may be divided into more than one teaching session. The suggestions on how to use this Guide and the lesson outlines for each module are just a guide. Trainers are encouraged to adapt or revise as needed and appropriate.
