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
During the past 20-30 years, the concept of family-centered care has been adopted and recommended by a variety of national healthcare organizations including the Institute for Family-Centered Care, the Institute of Medicine, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. These principles are equally applicable to patients and families of all ages, including infants and their families in the NICU. The major tenets of family-centered care include the following:
1. People are treated with dignity and respect.
2. Healthcare providers communicate and share information with patients and families in ways that are affirming and useful.
3. Individuals and families build on their strengths by participating in experiences that enhance feelings of control and independence.
4. Collaboration among patients, families, and providers occurs in policy and program development and professional education, as well as in the delivery of care.

1. The family is a constant in the lives of patients of all ages.
2. The family is variously defined by patients and families.
3. Family-centered care must be comprehensive-integrated throughout the system of care and embraced by all disciplines.
4. Patient and family involvement in policy and program development must be meaningful and widespread.
Family-centered care in the NICU needs to begin prenatally, with consultation by the NICU staff with parents as soon as the potential for NICU admission is identified and continued as needed to support the family regardless of the setting.
Unfortunately, not all babies hospitalized in the NICU survive. Parents who experience the death of an infant need clear and consistent communication delivered with compassion; shared decision making; physical and emotional support at the time of death; and medical, psychological, and social follow-up. Although the circumstances of end of life care differ from usual NICU care, the principles are the same as for good family-centered care in the NICU.
