Many say that the brain is the last frontier of neonatal care and to support this belief Neuro-Intensive Care Nurseries or NeuroNICU's are popping up all over the globe.
Since the definition of a NeuroNICU is not well-defined, each hospital capitalizes on their local expertise and specific interests to develop their plan for creating a NeuroNICU program.
For the last 5 years, Kathi Randall has been traveling the globe supporting NICUs who have an interest in creating a NeuroNICU program and increasing their use of brain monitoring and neuro-protective care at the bedside. Through this experience, Kathi has developed a framework for other NICUs to follow, and has created the "4 Pillars of NeuroNICU Care".
Within each of these 4 pillars there are opportunities to observe, evaluate, initiate, or improve existing practices in the NICU that may affect the developing brain. And this creates opportunities for every member of the care team (including parents) to take their NICU to the next level.
In this one-hour webinar, Kathi will share the 4 Pillars of NeuroNICU Care, provide examples of projects that can be implemented, and share some exemplary case examples from her travels to other NICUs around the world.
