Complementary and alternative therapies (CAT) is an umbrella term used to describe a wide array of mind and body practices, as well as the use of natural products. The benefits of complementary therapies in the pediatric and adult population have been well documented and accepted in a variety of care settings. While little literature exists in the neonatal population. emerging research does show benefits in pain and stress management, minimizing the hospitalized neonate’s exposure to toxic stress, and the
harmful side effects of conventional products and pharmacological agents.

Learning Objectives:

  • 1

    List at least one complementary therapy that is currently being used or investigated in the neonatal population

  • 2

    Describe two potential barriers to the implementation of hospital-based complementary therapies
