Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 11: Critical Periods of 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
This chapter presents the critical periods of development, highlighting the importance of developmental support during pregnancy and postnatal life. The time at which an infant is born is considered in context with its critical period of fetal development. For example, these considerations have brought about a deeper understanding that infants born between 34 and 36 weeks' gestation are-in developmental terms-late-preterm infants and not near-term infants. Subtle differences in developmental characteristics color the ways in which health professionals view infants and the protections necessary to promote positive health.
