Dewi Marianthi [2]


Abstract: Background Mortality rate is one of the indicators used to illustrate the health status of a country. Infant mortality rate in Indonesia is quite high, and newborns have an even higher mortality rate compared to older infants. The low competence of the community in early detection of newborns at risk is considered as one of the factors that causes belated treatment. Objective: to increase the participation of the community in early detection of newborns at risk by providing training for neonatal care. Method: a quasi-experimental quantitative method, with one-group pretest-posttest design. The sample of the research is 45 health workers in Ulee Kareng Health Center, Banda Aceh. Result: the result of the research revealed the increased competence in knowledge, attitudes and skills of the health workers with p value 0, 0000 before and after the neonatal care training. Conclusion: neonatal care training will increase the competence (knowledge, attitudes and skills) of health workers in early detection of newborns at risk.
