Getting from Good to Great: Benefit and Value Metric Composite Quality Scores

May 4, 2018 11:15am ‐ May 4, 2018 12:15pm

Dr. Kaempf outlines the development of a risk-adjusted composite morbidity and mortality score for VLBW infants, and explores the only website-available resource utilization tool used for tracking multiple ongoing continuous quality improvement (CQI) projects within an NICU. Morbidities have complex etiologies and outcomes are intertwined; thus, an overall "Big Picture" of CQI efforts is clarifying, edifying, and a practical way to enhance overall value and family satisfaction in all NICUs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the web-based tool that NICUs can use to calculate composite morbidity and resource utilization scores.
  • Discuss future CQI efforts and what they should address.

Doing Death 'Well': Reframing Neonatal and Perinatal Palliative Care

May 6, 2018 9:00am ‐ May 6, 2018 10:00am

Death is a part of life in the NICU, and any clinician associated with labor and delivery and the care of newborns will inevitably experience perinatal death and bereavement. Palliative care principles are difficult to apply to neonatology. The social stigma of denying neonatal death coupled with the paradox of providing palliative care in a curative setting present a compelling practical problem. However, it is possible for palliative care to coexist with curative treatment modes. In this presentation, Dr. Kain explores the philosophy of a “good death,” in an effort to reframe neonatal and perinatal palliative care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the current status of neonatal and perinatal palliative care from a global perspective.
  • Discuss the tenets of neonatal and perinatal palliative care in terms of best practice.
  • Describe the philosophy of facilitating a 'good death' for neonates with life-limiting conditions and the support of families and caregivers.

  • Victoria Kain, RN, MD, NICC, PhD, Director of Undergraduate Nursing Programs, School of Nursing & Midwifery Griffith University, Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Australia

Extremely Premature Birth and Periviability Guidelines

May 6, 2018 11:15am ‐ May 6, 2018 12:15pm

How can we come to true, shared decision making with pregnant women who might deliver an extremely premature infant? Is NICU care or palliative comfort care the preferred course to choose? How can we understand and apply Value Pluralism as the template to address cultural, social, and religious ethical characteristics that vary among families, healthcare providers, and society-at-large? Join us for this important discussion.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the tenets of "value pluralism."
  • Discuss the complexity of shared decision making in regards to the birth of the ELBW infant.
