Why you want to attend?

Fetal development outside the womb leads to altered brain development resulting in well-documented risks for motor impairments, cognitive deficits and behavioral disorders. Separation of the infant from mother exacerbates these risks. Neuroprotective care involves interventions used to help prevent neuronal injury and support optimal brain development in hospitalized infants.

In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Raylene Phillips will describe evidence-based, clinical strategies to provide neuroprotective care for preterm infants in the NICU. She will share an innovative approach to organizing or revitalizing a family-centered, neuroprotective, developmental care program for your NICU. You will hear many practical ideas you can put into practice immediately.

Our Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe at least 3 ways preterm brain development can be altered by the NICU environment
  2. Describe at least 3 ways NICU staff can support neuroprotective care in the NICU
  3. Describe at least 3 ways parents can provide neuroprotective care for their babies that NICU staff cannot
