Neuroprotective Care and inclusion of families as care partners, has been around for years, yet with COVID, restrictions were put in place regarding a family’s presence in a newborn intensive care unit. Post-pandemic some of these policies have not changed. Zero Separation is the goal and developmentally supportive infant- and family-centered care is the frame. This care is essential for positive growth, development, and emotional family support.

Join us to learn more about what developmental care is and the impact of the NICU environment on infants and families. We'll also look at current standards, competencies, and frameworks that support developmental care and parents as care partners and how you can work towards implementing them.
