GOLD Neonatal Conference News

The GOLD family is excited to launch GOLD Neonatal, the latest in our line up of online education for healthcare professionals. GOLD Neonatal expands upon our annual maternal-child health conferences GOLD Lactation, GOLD Perinatal, and GOLD Midwifery.

Over the past eleven years, GOLD Learning has been a trusted source of education for thousands, connecting delegates with current information and relevant topics. We offer various learning experiences including conferences, webinars, symposiums, and an online lecture library. Our online format minimizes conference costs for delegates and supports a truly global learning event. With the live presentation chats, Q & A periods, forums, and dedicated Facebook discussion groups, delegates connect and discuss presentations for enhanced learning.

GOLD Neonatal conference brings a fresh learning opportunity. Health care professionals working within the NICU and the Neonatal ward including Neonatal Nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners, and neonatologists will find presentations to expand their education. This specialized conference zeroes in on the information they need most and connects them to top speakers in the field.

This year’s conference topics include: neonatal analgesia, neuroprotective core measures, donor milk, and much more. Delegates will hear about the newest research and the emerging trends in the field. In addition to the main conference presentations, add-on packages will be available for Pharmacology as well as Milk Banking.

Opening Keynote Speaker Dr. Nils Bergman will kick off the conference with, “Zero separation of mother and newborn: the science behind the concept,” on May 8th. He’ll explain why the perinatal period is irreplicable in setting the foundation for numerous biological processes and how maternal-infant separation causes immediate adverse consequences.

On May 23rd, we’ll be joined by Dr. Michael Narvey for, “Many Different Shades of Yellow.” Dr. Narvey’s presentation will include information on jaundice in the NICU, the use of transcutaneous measurement, and treatment below 35 weeks gestational age. Delegates will learn how the current approach to jaundice might influence the risk of developing severe hyperbilirubinemia and chronic bilirubin encephalopathy.

GOLD Neonatal 2017 will run from May 8 to June 30, with live presentations taking place on May 8, 15, 16, 17, and 23. Delegates will have until June 30 to access recordings, and GOLD Annual Members enjoy extended viewing time until July 15.

We look forward to seeing both familiar and new faces at GOLD Neonatal 2017 as we launch this exciting learning event!
