Abstract:

Despite receiving standardized Neonatal Resuscitation Program NRP training, providers frequently fail to comply with NRP guidelines during neonatal resuscitation . The most common deviations include ineffective ventilation technique, difficulty completing intubation, and improper medication administration. In an effort to address these performance gaps we devised a teaching paradigm, called Task-Oriented Role Assignment, in which we have delegated a specific set of tasks to be performed within the traditional role assignments used during NRP. We hypothesize that this method will improve communication and task delegation within the resuscitation team, resulting in improved NRP performance.
