Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 21: Palliative Care 1.0 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
Palliative care is a critical aspect of comprehensive newborn/infant and family-centered developmental care. A variety of measures can help alleviate an infant's pain while simultaneously involving parents as valued primary caretakers. These measures include adequate pain medication, kangaroo care, music therapy, ambient lighting, aromatherpy, and infant massage. Implementing such practices can provide positive outcomes not only for the infant, but also for the parents and the neonatal care team. Parents feel less like bystanders when they can suggest or participate in supplemental care practices. Nonatal care team members may see an improvement in an infant's comfort level and develop a more positive relationship with parents. More research is needed to determine effective palliative care measures and support needs for infants and their families.
