A Guide to Cue-Based Feeding in the NICU is organized by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) and will be held from Aug 21 - 22, 2022 at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Support Center, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America.
Join us for a Train-the-Trainer workshop to learn about the Early Feeding Skills Assessment (EFS) tool. Effective feeding starts with assessing what an infant requires to be successful. Learn to utilize the EFS to efficiently give an infant-guided method of feeding. Learn to teach others at home to utilize the EFS to enhance the care provided by your unit's feeding specialists. Examine recent research, the importance of experiences and dynamic systems theory, and the feeding outcomes following NICU. Videotapes that have the enhanced audio of breathing and swallowing, to understand the key areas of skill of the EFS breathing regulation oral motor and swallowing functions and physiologic stability, engagement, and changes in the patterns of coordination in s-s-b as infants grow. Learn to score early-feeding skills that aren't yet apparent, but are either emerging or established. Discover the elements of the infant-guided, co-regulated approach to food and adapt them in a way that makes this method so effective making use of the EFS to develop individualized interventions. Get resources to teach others how to utilize the EFS. In a group, connect and tackle difficult issues, and demonstrate a cooperative feeding approach.
* Discuss the outcomes of eating in preterms.
* Describe the scoring procedure for the EFS
* Discuss how you can apply the EFS to the cue-based feeding method and solve problems
* Identify cues in infants that indicate tension during feeding, which are related to swallowing, physiology, and feeding
* Scores and profiles of infant feeding based on readiness, oral-motor stability, physiologic stability, and swallowing by using videotaped feeds
Seminar Content :
* Theoretical concepts of Dynamic Systems applied to feed
* Preterm infant feeding skill development
* Assessment systematic by using the EFS
* Scoring practice with videotape feeds
* Applying EFS to intervene Use within your unit
• Problem-solving team problems and achieving
