Therapeutic Interventions in the NICU
What others are saying:
"Tracilyn was exceptional about tailoring the course to the audience, explaining concepts to those newer to the NICU setting, and addressing the roles of all 3 disciplines within the NICU. This is one of the best education events I have ever attended."
"This was a great course for any level of experience. I am a therapist new to NICU and feel much more positive and prepared to begin observing in preparation for evaluation and treatment."
"This course was excellent for those who are just beginning in the NICU and looking to expand their overall knowledge with the neonatal population. Tracilyn is a great teacher and has a lot of experience to share. Overall, I am very pleased with this course!"
