When, how and why, do neonatal therapists get involved with the micro-preemie population? While neonatal therapists have become established in neonatal intensive care units, how and when therapists get involved in a neonate’s care can differ across units. This can lead to differing levels of ability to serve the most fragile infants. From skin integrity, handling and parent engagement, to pain and stress, and positioning, there are many interventions the neonatal therapist can provide for the most fragile of NICU infants. This course will serve to introduce and build on skills the neonatal therapist needs to serve the micro-preemie population.
