Care of the Newborn Brain Symposium

This multidisciplinary conference is designed for health care providers interested in understanding perinatal diagnoses and their etiologies, increasing diagnostic skills in assessing high-risk infants, and discussing issues that surround the age of viability. Attendees will learn about pre and postnatal best practices through utilizing a team approach in planning care of both mother and baby. Evidence-based practices, including provision of family-centered care before, during and after birth, and sometimes infant dying and death, will be discussed. The need for a small baby unit will be described, highlighting the necessity of neurodevelopmental care to improve all health outcomes.
