WHO-CC AIIMS with the help of nursing colleagues and neonatologist from SEARO region came out with Essential Newborn Nursing for Small Hospitals with limited resources. The participatory learning tool can be accessed at www.newbornwhocc.org . The core contents are based on current evidence based practices advocated by WHO HQ (PCPNC Guidelines for Health Workers, World Health Organization 2010) and experts’ opinion. The same is converted as “Aide Memoire” for healthcare professionals on smart phones. Modules have undergone pilot testing among nurses and doctors. The feedback suggested has been incorporated. We would welcome suggestions for further improvement.
