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.

Module Summary
Therapeutic positioning in the NICU is an essential caregiving intervention that uses external supports to compensate for an infant's immature neuromotor, physiologic, and neurosensory systems in an environment that is very different from and much more stressful than the protective womb. Ideally, a comfortable, soft, three-dimensional nest with secure and deep boundaries should contain preterm or ill infants with gentle flexion and midline orientation of the extremities, and with the head and trunk supported in neutral alignment.
