This 6.5-hour master class will review the latest evidence addressing the importance of age-appropriate activities of daily living, specifically postural alignment and support, infant driven feeding experiences and hygiene practices that optimize integrity of not only the skin but the microbiome. 

Master Class participants will examine their current practices and identify opportunities for improvement that align with patient safety and quality objectives.

This Master Class series is presented by Mary Coughlin, MS, NNP, RNC-E, the internationally recognized expert in the field of trauma-informed care for hospitalized newborns, infants and families. Ms. Coughlin has mentored close to 10,000 interdisciplinary NICU clinicians from over 14 countries to transform the experience of care for the hospitalized infant and family in crisis.

This master class series will:

  • Introduce the concept of trauma-informed care for hospitalized newborns, infants and families;
  • Present evidence-based best practices to ameliorate and mitigate the trauma experience;
  • Coach and mentor participants in the development of effective transformation strategies that will provide measurable results  for infants, families and clinicians;
  • Employ the principles of 'Joy in Work' as the foundation to engage and ultimately transform the culture of care in YOUR ENVIRONMENT 

A tribe learning framework ensures participants feel included, appreciated, and respected for their differences, are actively involved in their own learning and receive positive input and support from their peers ensuring the collective success of the entire tribe.

As a product of tribe learning, participants will choose accountability partners to support their ongoing success beyond the master class setting.
