Science & Soul 2019

The Congress is organized by Caring Essentials Collaborative, LLC and the Quantum Caring Institute.  The Organizing Committee has put together an auspicious program highlighted by prestigious keynote presenters Dr. Heidelise Als of the United States and Dr. Carlo Bellieni of Italy.  In addition, the Congress boasts an international conference faculty of interdisciplinary experts to share their knowledge and evidence-based best practices with congress attendees.

CONGRESS OBJECTIVES

Science & Soul 2019 brings together leading scientists, researchers, clinicians and educators to translate advances in our understanding of early life adversity, epigenetics and parental mental health into actionable improvements in the care of critically ill infants and families.

SCIENCE & SOUL 2019 WILL HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON NEONATAL AND PEDIATRIC CLINICAL PRACTICE WITH THE FOLLOWING OBJECTIVES:

  • To bring together international experts to catalyze and advance evidence-based practice in trauma-informed, age-appropriate neuroprotective care of the infant and family in crisis across all healthcare settings.

  • To create a mastermind group that will explore, brainstorm and create clinically relevant, evidence-based practice improvement strategies that ensure high quality, safe, timely, patient and family centered care.

  • To raise the bar in the performance expectations of transdisciplinary neonatal and pediatric clinicians in meeting the disease-independent, age-appropriate needs of the hospitalized newborn, infant and family.

  • To foster scholarship that will engage and empower frontline clinicians to begin a cultural transformation in their clinical setting that reflects the principles and practices of trauma-informed, neuroprotective care for infants, families, and clinicians.

I purchased access to the Science and Soul 2018 lectures. It was such a moving moment for me to see and listen to such outstanding work.... I got to see and listen to Dr Als for the second time in my 40 year nursing career. I really want to make a difference in the lives of the little souls and their families we care for, It is something I have worked for my entire career.
