Creating a Culture of Consistency for
Skin to Skin Holding in YOUR Nursery

Scroll down to complete the registration form and watch the recording of our August 12th webinar now.

Why you want to attend:

  • Do you practice skin to skin holding in your nursery?
  • Is it consistently offered, done in a consistent manner, and provided on a consistent basis?

The benefits and research of skin to skin holding are well understood in the NICU, but often times the implementation is inconsistent and dependent on the clinician caring for the infant. In this presentation we will discuss the common barriers to implementing skin to skin holding, practical tips for creating more confidence by using consistent practices and innovative techniques, as well as the importance of a well-coordinated team.

Our Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe how to support a parent and intubated infant during a skin to skin transfer.
  2. List two techniques to increase consistent practices for skin to skin holding in the NICU.
