This symposium will bring together experts in the fields of neurodevelopment, lung biology, environment of care and neuroimaging. We will be exploring ways to leverage the partition between nature, and nurture. We will examine the care of these children in the postnatal environment and post-hospitalization to prevent continuing illnesses, hospitalizations, and unrealized developmental potential.
Capping off the 10th anniversary celebration of our Carter Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), will be a story of one of our NICU babies and his incredible connection to the creator of the Disney-Pixar movie, Finding Nemo.
Please join us for a panel discussion with nurses who moved with the unit 10 years ago. Neonatal nursing is at the heart of the successful impact of the single-family-room NICU on developmental outcome. A model utilizing family-centered care, communication and a welcoming environment that partners families and staff that contributes significantly to measurable developmental improvements. Learn about their perspective of the single-family-room style NICU and what they have learned over the years.
