This engaging course is designed to provide participants with tools and strategies to prepare the NICU patient and family for discharge and transition home. Class participants will learn to evaluate, identify, and optimize services and care for NICU graduates as well as to enhance home based and/or outpatient clinical setting skills. Evidence based medical, developmental and outcome data will be discussed to inform treatment, best practices, and management of the medically fragile NICU child.
Upon completion of course, the participant will be able to:
1. Provide evidence based thoughts and comments for recommendations of follow up care of an infant and family/caregiver after discharge from the NICU.
2. Provide rationale for selection of a therapeutic intervention plan of care with a post NICU infant and their family/caregiver.
3. Determine positioning needs within a therapeutic intervention plan with the post NICU infant and their family/caregiver.
4. Determine the need for developmental follow up, family intervention, and a positioning and handling programming for NICU graduates.
Participant Requirements: Participants will need to have a doll and two baby blankets available to practice techniques during the webinar.
