Description

Coast Life Midwifery are pleased to host a study day by Greg Coulson Neonatal Nurse Practitioner exploring the art of Neonatal Examination for Midwives.

Greg is an advocate for independent midwifery practice and is happy to support fellow midwives in delivering the safest and least interventional family centred care.

Greg started his nursing career at the MackayBaseHospital in 1987 & completed his training to become a registered nurse, soon after going on to complete a Bachelor of Health Science through the University of New England in Armidale. After a short stint working in surgical wards, Emergency department and ICU he relocated to Bundaberg to complete his Midwifery studies.

Greg has continued to work in the Midwifery field since 1992, thoroughly enjoying working with women and their families. He undertook his Neonatal training in Hobart in 1995 to complement his midwifery skills. He has worked in a birth centre and also as part of a group practice Midwifery model.

When working as a Midwife/Neonatal nurse for two years in the USA he got the opportunity to witness the role of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. Soon after returning to Australia he continued to specialise more in the Special Care & Neonatal Intensive Care areas.

After completing his Masters Degree through QUT in 2008 he was fortunate enough to get a position as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner at the MackayBaseHospital. He worked in this role for 8 years and it gave him the opportunity to work autonomously running the Special Care Nursery directing and managing care of sick & premature newborns, conducting local retrievals and also running weekly neonatal clinics. This was a unique role in that he was one of the first Nurse Practitioners employed in a nursery outside of a tertiary hospital.

In May 2016, he moved to Buderim with his wife Katrina to take up a position as a Nurse Practitioner at the new Neonatal Unit at the SunshineCoastUniversityHospital. Greg is happily married, (today) has two daughters, enjoys keeping fit through running, riding, swimming and anything outdoors and likes doing home renovations.

Topics covered include:

  • Neonatal examination, theory and practical stations.
  • Identifying abnormal and referral
  • Infection in the Newborn
  • Neonatal Hypoglycaemia and Meconium liquor
  • Exploring latest evidence to support families making informed choices around care
  • Discussion and reflection

Morning tea and lunch provided, please advise us via email (admin@coastlifemidwifery.com.au) of any particular dietary requirements.
