Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 12: Factors Influencing Development 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
Numerous factors influence growth and development during the prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal periods and the neurobehavioral development and outcomes of the fetus and newborn. The normal growth and development of a fetus is influenced by a complex interaction of genes and the environment. An infant's genetic endowment reflects that which the infant has inherited from his or her parents and previous generations as well as any new chromosomal alterations or gene mutations. The intrauterine environment in which the fetus develops is influenced by biological, physical, and social factors. Maternal, fetal, and placental risk factors and disorders can alter this environment and the infant's developmental trajectory. Long-term developmental outcomes for these infants are part of individualized family-centered plans. These outcomes are affected by the prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal influences described in this chapter. The philosophy of developmental care requires that assessment and plans be holistic, individualized, family-centered, and developmentally supportive. Part of understanding individual differences is recognizing the biological risks for each factor that influences developmental outcomes. All caregivers of infants postbirth also should be aware of and advocate for strategies before and during pregnancy that may prevent preterm birth and other problems as well as improve outcomes.
