Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 17: Oral Feeding and the High-Risk Infant 2.0 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
Oral feeding of high-risk newborns is a complex issue requiring the support of a multidisciplinary team, especially during the transition from enteral to oral feeding and during the transition to home. During each of these transitions, both the infant and the family will require support. Encouraging families right from the start to be caregivers and provide as many oral feedings as possible, be it by breast or bottle, is important to help families develop confidence and competence in caring for their infant. There is no evidence to support the need for professional care providers to provide the "first" oral feeding or any oral feeding for that matter. Parents can be supported to provide all feedings; supporting their involvement is in the best interest of their infant's long-term development.
