New Guidelines for Comprehensive Caring and Newborn Intensive Parenting Units of the Future

This workshop is designed for interdisciplinary teams who are ready, willing and able to explore a new comprehensive model of NICU care. Parent and professional experts will guide participants on a journey focused on translating evidence to action to shift the paradigm – transforming your NICU into a Newborn Intensive Parenting Unit (NIPU). Participants will explore both the biologic basis for NIPUs, and further, will explore innovative models that currently exist. Finally, participants will focus on integrating the new guidelines and standards for family parenting and support from the National Perinatal Association (NPA) and learn from key centers of excellence.
