Why do you want to attend?

NICUs were developed as new technology and treatments became available for critically ill newborns. Much later, we discovered how important the environment of care could be to babies at this crucial stage of their development. This presentation will review our current knowledge of the environment of care and discuss the implications for optimal design and operation of NICUs.

Our Learning Objectives:

  1. List two phases of brain development that occur while preterm infants reside in the NICU
  2. Describe two benefits of extended, intimate maternal contact for preterm infants that can be found in recently published literature
  3. Summarize aspects of NICU design that enhance infant development, as well as parental and staff satisfaction
