Education refresher sheets during the coronavirus outbreak

Home > Education refresher sheets

These quick education refresher sheets can be used by staff working during  the Covid-19 crisis.

Following the publication of the Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative statements on infant feeding during the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, we have been informed of the need for quick, easy-to-use education refresher sheets for staff working to deliver postnatal care. This could include return to practice midwives, third year students who have been fast-tracked to practice or healthcare assistants who have been redeployed into postnatal care within hospital or community settings. This information is an interim measure to help staff provide support and does not replace training. Staff can use the links provided as additional aides and share relevant links and information with parents.

If your service would benefit from additional reference sheets on a specific topic not already covered, please contact us at bfi@unicef.org.uk.
