Our second annual GOLD Neonatal online conference is poised to be a fantastic event filled with learning and ne connections. With twelve years of providing child and maternal healthcare professionals with the latest education from top speakers, GOLD Learning has become an industry leader in online education. In 2017 we launched GOLD Neonatal to meet the continuing education needs of those working in the neonatal field.

To wrap up our 2018 GOLD Neonatal live presentations, we’ll be joined by Mary Coughlin McNeil, MS, NNP, RNC-E with her Closing Keynote Presentation “Touch a Life, Impact a Lifetime: The Therapeutic Value of YOU”. This presentation will be shared live twice on June 18 and will be available as a recording until July 15.

Reserve your free seat today and join us for this exciting event! Don’t forget to invite friends and colleagues to join in the learning:

Mary Coughlin McNeil is a leader in neonatal nursing who pioneered the concept of trauma-informed care as a biologically relevant paradigm for hospitalized newborns, infants, and their families. With over 35 years of experience in the field and numerous published manuscripts and textbooks, Mary brings an incredible wealth of knowledge to GOLD Neonatal 2018.

During this presentation, delegates will increase their understanding of the lifelong impact of early life adversity and the associated toxic stress. Mary will explain the neurodevelopmental and psycho-socio-emotional outcomes from touch as well as the impact of touch on mental health outcomes. This presentation will offer an opportunity to gain crucial insights into the biological underpinnings of our unique therapeutic value in the clinical setting.

We look forward to this event and to the change that attendees will go on to create in their NICUs!
