Live Webinar for Therapists. Complete Both Sessions for 14 Contact Hours (1.4 CEUs) January 14 and 15, 2022 9:40 am EST • 8:40 am CST • 7:40 am MST • 6:40 am PST (US) This course will provide in-depth knowledge of the general prenatal and postnatal physiologic processes of common neonatal cardiac, respiratory, and neurologic diagnoses along with the developmental consequences and physiologic obstacles faced by pre-term and full-term infants born with these diagnoses. Recent research will be reviewed to bring the neonatal therapist up to date on long-term outcomes as well as current and possible future medical management and developmental interventions. Identification and synthesis of medical, caregiving, family/social, and diagnostic information will be a strong focus to ensure therapists can immediately apply advanced critical thinking skills and strategies to their caseloads. Topics approached from an integrated neuroprotective NICU team framework will include handling, positioning, oral care, feeding/swallowing and sensory processing. Infant directed intervention with implications for frequency and intensity will be discussed. A strong focus will be placed on developmental appropriateness, research efficacy, and both professional and family caregiver education. The use of videos and real life experience will make this course engaging, interactive and functional to any clinician looking to make an impact for the infants on their caseload with complex medical issues.
