Supporting Optimal Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in Infants and Children with Congenital Heart Disease
Supporting Optimal Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in Infants and Children with Congenital Heart Disease is organized by American Association of Critical - Care Nurses (AACN) and will be held from May 31, 2018 - Jun 01, 2021.
Infants and children with congenital heart disease (CHD) have increased chances for survival, thanks to innovative surgical and medical interventions. Because patients with CHD are more likely to reach adulthood, greater attention to their developmental needs during acute hospitalizations is warranted. Bedside nurses interacting with CHD patients can promote optimal neural development through a range of interventions including massage, skin to skin care, supportive positioning, cue-based feeding and pain management. Further research is needed to determine the outcomes of these interventions in this high risk population.
• Describe the mechanisms that place infants and children with congenital heart disease at risk for developmental delays
• Identify three nursing interventions that promote optimal development in infants and children with congenital heart disease
• Discuss how developmental supportive care could be integrated into existing nursing care for patients with congenital heart disease
