During this Free Webinar You Will Learn:
The traditional approach to caring for substance-exposed infants includes a NICU admission, extended separation for their families, and pharmacological strategies. The team at Yale-New Haven have developed another way that is centered around a baby’s job description – to eat, to sleep and to be consoled. This strategy has been adopted in other units around the US with similar success and with incredible outcomes for infants, parents and care-givers.
Join us for an in-depth review of this new approach and be inspired to change the way you care for exposed infants and their families.
- List the three required tasks for a baby in the ESC Model
- Discuss two or more limitations of the Finnegan scoring tool for NAS
- Describe at least two differences between the traditional model of care for substance-exposed infants and the ESC model of care in terms of length of stay, pharmacological management, and parental involvement
