Tools and Strategies for Developmental Care of Special Populations in the NICU is a problem-based course addressing very low birthweight babies, small baby teams, NAS, and the long-term NICU infant.
This introductory-intermediate level course will focus on therapeutic intervention programs in the NICU that are evidenced-based and will provide neonatal therapists with tools, strategies, and enhanced critical problem-solving skills. The course will provide a case-based approach to the challenges seen in special populations: the very low birthweight infant, NAS, and the long-term NICU infant. Critical problems will be the emphasis. Small baby teams will be discussed. Focus will be given to the NICU environment, the sensory experience, and feeding programs that best support developmental care and provide neuroprotection.
At the end of this course, clinicians will be able to:
• Discuss key concepts of neuroprotection and stress in the NICU and how the neonatal therapist plays a role
• Be able to learn to provide therapeutic interventions and strategies for the environment, positioning, feeding, (bottle and breast), pain, sleep, and family support. Will include video learning and case studies
• Incorporate developmental care into your practice with the very low birth weight infant, the late preterm, and infants with NAS
• Use clinical problem-solving skills to determine best practices to address the challenges presented by in the NICU both in terms of clinical issues as well as in multi-disciplinary developmental care
• Apply strategies learned to create change in the NICU regarding developmental care. Will include group project with practical strategies to take back to your own NICU.
