The traditional approach to caring for substance-exposed infants includes a NICU admission, extended separation for their families, and pharmacological strategies. The team at Yale-New Haven have developed another way that is centered around a baby's job description - to eat, to sleep and to be consoled. This strategy has been adopted in other units around the US with similar success and with incredible outcomes for infants, parents and care-givers.
Join us for an in-depth review of this new approach and be inspired to change the way you care for exposed infants and their families.
