We are thrilled to add this new course for 2015:
NICU: Challenges, Pitfalls and Practical Tips for Successful Developmental Intervention
This beginner- intermediate course will focus on creating change in the NICU in developmental care for the bedside clinician. Content will focus on learning about neuroprotection for infants and how to provide care to assist with best possible development for the infant. Emphasis will be on practical strategies to implement change. Areas of change will incorporate the healing environment, positioning, incorporating families, and feeding.
