The Neonatal Resuscitation Programme is a good example of an effective educational intervention that has improved perinatal mortality rates in many countries. This paper shares our experience of planning an undergraduate Neonatal Resuscitation Programme using basic principles of education theory of spiral curriculum, Bloom's taxonomy in planning learning outcomes, Kolb's learning model and Miller's model of clinical assessment. Engaging clinicians in pedagogical theories may not be well aligned with how clinicians traditionally thought they learnt best, yet it is key to improving learning concept and educational intervention outcomes in the healthcare professions. This article aims to illustrate the application of such educational theories into one example of practice. We structured this paper in the scope of content, delivery and assessment when planning a psychomotor learning activity.
