Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 19: Touch and Massage for High-Risk Infants 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
This chapter focuses predominantly on two forms of massage: the auditory, tactile, visual, and vestibular (ATVV) intervention and moderate-pressure massage combined with kinesthetic activity. Both forms have been broadly researched and found to elicit the benefits mentioned earlier. ATVV, in particular, has been found to provide multiple benefits, including the opportunity to learn social interaction. When determining who should implement infant massage, researchers show that effective providers of massage include both trained clinicians and parents. Further research is needed to understand the relationship between infant massage and stress reduction; the things that mediate infant and maternal response to massage; ways in which infant massage reduces maternal anxiety and increases infant weight gain; the hormones involved in infant neurohormonal response to massage; and the best approach based on infant age and health status.
