Developmental Care CNE Module

Module 3: Quality Indicators: Using the Universe of Developmental Care 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
Developmental care is practiced around the world, yet a concise definition has yet to be universally accepted. Until the practice is standardized, comparisons between and within units will remain fraught with difficulty. The Universe of Developmental Care (UDC) Model is the first reformulation of the conceptual foundation of developmental care since Synactive Theory. The UDC places the individual patient at the center (core) of care. Evidence-based outcomes relating to the external environment and new therapies arising from internal medicine are incorporated in the UDC as primary care practices grounded on the common surface shared by body and environment. Core measures are quantifiable care practices that manifest at a defined surface of care that can be either disease-dependent or disease-independent. Core measures are measures of care based on evidence. The UDC model postulates that infants, families, staff, and the environment share a common surface that must be attended to for all aspects of physical, psychological, and emotional well-being. Specific examples of disease-independent core measures of developmental care are detailed in this chapter. The concept of core measures further refines the tenets of developmental care and offers practical approaches to practice, education, and research. Additionally, the chapter offers a methodology to introduce and evaluate change within the NICU. Foundationally, the UDC model and its definition of core measures manifest a philosophy of change in healthcare based on evidence of improved outcomes for infants and families worldwide.
