March 25, 2023
9:40 am EST • 8:40 am CST • 7:40 am MST • 6:40 am PST (US)
This first of a 4-part series focuses on three Fundamental Knowledge components: the NICU Environment and its impact on premature infant development, the building blocks of neonatal therapy practice and a thorough dive into neonatal body systems. This beginner to intermediate course will explore normal and abnormal functions and how the systems are interconnected. In addition, you’ll learn how comorbidities, medical/surgical interventions and disease processes affect supportive strategies, safe intervention parameters and short/long term outcomes. This series will be perfect for NTs studying for the Neonatal Therapy Certificate Exam and for those beginning to establish competency by 1) laying a foundation of fundamental knowledge, 2) closing gaps within core competencies, and 3) assuring both fundamental knowledge and core competency knowledge are applied during NICU interventions.
- Recognize how proficiency for independent practice can be established
- Determine the impact of the NICU environment on premature infant development.
- Recognize the role of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis in influencing reactions to stress and regulating body processes.
- Relate the philosophical assumptions, underlying perspectives and basic principles of theoretical models & structural frameworks to the basis of neonatal therapy evaluation and treatment.
- Apply understanding of body system functions, interconnectedness, vulnerabilities, and changes over time in relation to infant post-menstrual age.
- Analyze the influence of common comorbidities, associated medical/surgical interventions, of disease processes on supportive strategies, safe intervention parameters and short/long term outcomes.
