Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 25: Interdisciplinary Competency Validation 1.5 CNE contact hours



Enhance your developmental care studies with this online CNE learning module, which serves as a supplement to the Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants: A Guide for Health Professionals, second edition. Developed by the editors and authors of Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants: A Guide for Health Professionals, second edition, this module reinforces the most relevant and important aspects of developmental care.

If you are a nurse seeking to obtain the CNE contact hours, you should have read or studied the relevant portions of Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants, participated in another related course of study in developmental care, or draw upon your professional experience. Some learners may choose to use this learning module as a self-assessment tool. This self-study module includes a PDF with a brief written overview of one aspect of developmental care, a list of the related developmental care standards, several "points to remember," recommended supplemental readings, one or more reflective exercises, and one or more case studies. The learner must complete a post-test and an evaluation in order to receive the designated contact hours. This module is intended for nurses and occupational, physical, respiratory, and speech therapists.

This module is an aid and does not include an in-depth description of the subject matter. Instead, serves as a study guide that augments and builds on what learners are reading and studying or upon their professional experiences in developmental care as a means to promote understanding and retention.

Module Summary
Developmental competency is an integration of several levels and types of skills. If developmental interventions comprise only technical skills, then once a caregiver has learned how to perform them correctly, he or she should be able to implement them with any infant in any setting. If developmental interventions constitute evidence-based practice, then once a caregiver understands the evidence and can replicate studies supporting the completion of developmental interventions, he or she should be able to practice them. If developmental interventions exist as an art, then an understanding of contingencies and contexts is needed so caregivers can know how, when, and where to implement them. An art that cannot be specified in detail cannot be transmitted by prescription, however, because no prescription for it exists. The art of nursing is compatible with the American Nurses Association's definition of competency as inclusive of beliefs and attitudes as well as knowledge. If developmental interventions encompass technical skills, an awareness and understanding of evidence supporting their implementation, a special kind of art that involves connoisseurship, hands-on practice in performing the interventions, and education and mentoring are required to develop performance competencies.
We have come a long way toward full implementation of developmental care if many disciplines are acknowledging the need for competencies in this area. Awareness and professional dialogues are the first steps toward identifying developmental care competencies and ways in which to measure them. This chapter has raised issues that nurses and multidisciplinary team members can propose within their institutions and professional disciplines for further consideration.
