Pain Management in the NICU Add-on:

Brush up on your pain assessment and management skills! Babies in the NICU tend to require numerous painful interventions and research is showing that if that pain is not managed effectively and appropriately, there can be long lasting consequences for brain development. Join us as our expert speakers provide a focused look at the latest research and recommendations for assessing and managing pain in neonates. Topics include assessment, pain perception in infancy, effects of pain and anesthesia on the developing brain, and the latest on both pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods of pain relief.
