2019 NANT Virtual Summit: The Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program (NIDCAP) – Promise to Protect the Preterm Brain

By Sue Ludwig | 2 comments

“We already do that.”

The concept of developmental care has been around for over 30 years, yet it’s safe to say that while significant progress has been made, the neonatal community as a whole has a lot left to learn, or at least a lot left to integrate. After all, until knowledge and practices are consistently integrated into every NICU, and the care of every infant and family every day, the individual and global impact is yet to be fully realized.

What if you were able to learn about this topic directly from a master in the subject matter? What if you had the opportunity to dig deeper into the history, evidence, practices, progress, and outcomes related specifically to NIDCAP (The Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program) from the passionate originator of it?

This is an event you and your NICU colleagues won’t want to miss.

The 2019 NANT Virtual Summit features Dr. Heidelise Als from Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital presenting: The Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program (NIDCAP) – Promise to Protect the Preterm Brain.

It is an incredibly special opportunity to learn from a humble and dedicated visionary who wants to share her tireless work with the world in the interest of supporting babies and families.

If you’re reading this, we believe it’s because you’re someone who likes to improve things. We know that before you can advocate for something better, you must be equipped with the evidence and avenues that contribute to your goals.

The good news is, that’s exactly what the NANT Virtual Summit is all about – time set aside in early December to step away from the chaos of the hospital and receive high level education that relates to something you need.

Registration is FREE to anyone in the world who would like to attend.

*NANT is offering CE Credit for OT, PT, SLP, and Nursing for this event. You MUST register and attend/complete the course as an individual to receive CEUs.

    Good Evening,
    My name is Lisa Crilly and I am a pediatric PT in the NICU at the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ. We are a 18-20 bed level three NICU. We have PT,OT,SLP as our team and are organizing a developmental care team.
    I would love your thoughts on the needed members of the team to successfully provide appropriate developmental care in the unit.
