This innovative book for Neonatal Nurses and NICU clinicians provides evidence-based clinical guidelines proven to mitigate and reduce the often profound trauma experience and subsequent developmental challenges for vulnerable hospitalized infants and their families.
Each in-depth guideline includes the latest scientific research explaining the clinical rationale for the recommended practices, associated short-term and long-term outcomes, and implementation strategies to support practice improvement.
The text reflects a trend - the provision of trauma-informed care in the neonatal intensive care unit - that has recently gained increasing momentum.

The book also features downloadable sample competencies and parent teaching guides, along with additional eLearning modules with Nursing CE.
