Our goal is to provide presentations that will help bridge the gap between established protocols, practices and the rapid growth of new research. View this year's topics below:

Breastfeeding in the NiCU:

Breastmilk and breastfeeding are of particular importance for premature or ill neonates. Receiving human milk provides infants with the best chance of longterm health and wellness, but providing the right kind of support requires specialized knowledge. Learn more about the unique challenges of promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding in the NICU with this special package. With presentations on the whys and hows of using banked human milk, supporting breastfeeding in the late preterm infant, transitioning to the breast and best practices for breastfeeding in the NICU, this is your opportunity to expand your learning and clinical skills.

Mental Health in the NICU:

Caring for infants in the NICU involves more than just the care of the newborn. The whole family unit requires care in order to protect the mental health and wellness of infant and parents alike. The experience of having a premature or ill newborn, combined with the stress of the NICU environment, can have lasting negative effects without early intervention. Learn more about supporting the mental health of NICU families with this special package. With presentations on parental mental health, infant mental health, the mental health of NICU staff and interdisciplinary neuroprotective mental health care, this is your opportunity to expand your learning and clinical skills.
