Health | Wellness,
On behalf of the NIDCAP Federation International (NFI) and Contemporary Forums, we’d like to invite you to the 28th annual Developmental Interventions in Neonatal Care conference. The NFI and Contemporary Forums have joined together to collaborate on what we feel is an outstanding program, bringing together national experts and selected NIDCAP professionals to discuss strategies for providing individualized, supportive and family-centered developmental care for fragile infants. As you know, evidence continues to grow that the cascade of ongoing stimuli in the NICU signifi cantly affects the neuromotor and neurosensory development of premature infants. It is imperative that the NICU team recognizes the brain’s vulnerability at this important time and institutes caregiving practices which support resilience and improve developmental outcomes. The multidisciplinary faculty from the fi elds of medicine, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, speech pathology and rehabilitative medicine will help you translate the research in this fi eld to practical strategies for supporting the infant’s developmental and behavioral needs. A variety of teaching techniques will be utilized to present the important concepts of individualized developmental care, including didactic, interactive, case-based discussion and video demonstration.
