“That’s the way we’ve always done it” is a mantra heard around the world and is used as a crutch to perpetuate false, antiquated, or unsafe caregiving practices. This webinar will identify and ‘debunk’ typical NICU Myths related to areas such as feeding, positioning, and development with current research and literature. For example, “Breastfeeding is harder than bottle-feeding” or “All babies should be elevated to prevent GER” will be discussed. The concept of motivational interviewing and crucial conversations will also be introduced to help neonatal caregivers persevere in their effort to provide high quality, safe, and evidence-based caregiving practices in their NICU.
