New guidelines; diagnostic, treatment and monitoring advances; ethical dilemmas; anticipating and preventing complications; optimal patient comfort; staff/family interactions — these are just some of the challenges at the heart of caring for critically ill neonates. Keeping up with these changes and coordinating all facets of the care plan, from treating the disease process to meeting the diverse needs of the family, can turn daily practice into a balancing act. Yet our goal remains constant — to provide the best possible care to our vulnerable patients.
Join us at the 31st Annual The National Conference of Neonatal Nursing, where clinical experts will share their extensive knowledge and experience, and encourage thought-provoking discussions and problem-solving. Whether you're a nurse new to this specialty or an experienced clinician, the knowledge you gain will help you think critically and practice safely. Return to work energized and with increased confidence in the excellent care you provide!
