We are very excited to announce a new course: “Advanced Clinical Practice in the NICU”, presented by our new faculty member; Beth McManus, pediatric physical therapist.[caption id="attachment_965" align="alignright" width="120" caption="Beth McManus"][/caption]
We would like to thank our community of NICU therapists, who shared their thoughts and needs with us as we developed this course.
This advanced course will focus on clinical decision making for medically and developmentally complex patients in the NICU and transition to home and EI. Emphasis will be on in-depth knowledge of pathophysiology of common NICU diagnoses and special populations; choice and administration of evaluation tools and evidence-based therapeutic interventions, implementing developmentally supportive oral feeding interventions, and transition to post-NICU care. The course format will include labs and video case studies to allow attendees to integrate course material.
We are confident that this course will meet your next level of professional development, and as always welcome your thoughts and feedback.
