Course Brochure

The Unsettled Baby Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Feb 28 - Mar 01, 2019 at Oaks on Collins, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

The target audience for this medical event is Nurses and Midwives. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 10.30 CPD Hours.

Course Overview:
Nurses and Midwives working with mothers and babies are often asked what to do when babies remain unsettled. This program gives you insight into this problem and arms you with a raft of resources to help mothers and babies cope. Includes:
• Understanding why babies cry
• What is the ‘Period of PURPLE Crying and do all babies go through this period?
• When is crying considered excessive?
• What does babies crying mean? Interpreting the sounds...
• How do babies learn to self-regulate and soothe themselves?
• Infant Crying and the passage to sleep. How do they learn?
• Controlled crying - Good or Bad?
• Strategies that families try
• Crying and Child abuse

Need for Program:
Inconsolable infant crying and sleep disruption are a great source of concern for parents. This is a common problem affecting approximately a quarter of all parents. There is an abundance of advice and solutions to assist an unsettled baby - all of which are readily accessible. However, this advice is not always pertinent to a specific baby and parent. Nurses and midwives are important conduits to ensure correct information and interventions get to the parent when they need it most. There is a need for nurses and midwives to be correctly informed about the consensus and best practice course of action to implement in the care of an unsettled baby.

Purpose of Program:
The purpose of this seminar is to provide nurses and midwives with a deeper understanding of the unsettled baby and, using best available evidence, to assist parents and carers to appropriately respond to the infant.

Learning Objectives:
• You will know and apply a range of theories and interventions relating to the care of unsettled babies
• Babies presented to you with unsettled behaviour will be assessed to ensure there is no underlying physiological condition
• That advice you provide to mothers of unsettled babies will be informed with best available evidence
• Parents in your practice will be more confident when dealing with an unsettled baby

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
