Course Description:

This course is designed to provide participants with evidence based research that will contribute to their development and implementation of best practices of therapeutic intervention programs within a NICU environment. This course is designed to provide the therapist currently practicing within a NICU setting the knowledge base to apply evidence based assessment, application and intervention services.

Course Objectives:

Following Completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Discuss the theoretical basis and the evidence based outcomes for therapeutic services in the NICU.
2. Identify common self-regulation signals and different state behaviors displayed by premature infants.
3. Discuss typical motor and sensory development observed in premature infants; 23-24 weeks gestational age to one month old post conceptual age.
4. Discuss the pathophysiology of common medical diagnoses found in the NICU, the outcome of these diagnoses and potential impact a therapeutic management/treatment intervention may have with the infant and family/caregiver.
5. Apply evidence based research to clinical application for therapeutic evaluation, assessment and intervention in the NICU and after discharge.
6. Provide evidence based recommendations of follow up care of an infant and family/caregiver after discharge from the NICU.

Participant Requirements:

Participants should have a doll, two baby blankets and a baby bottle and nipple (any kind)

Because PT, OT and SLP practice in the NICU environment is not considered entry level by the AOTA, APTA and ASHA, it is advised that clinicians engage in continuing education courses and mentorships. This course is geared at an introductory to intermediate level.
