Purpose of this CNE activity: The Academy of Neonatal Nursing provides clinically current information on the technical, medical, and nursing aspects of neonatal care as well as the legal and ethical implications related to that care. This CNE activity provides information to nurses and other health care professionals who care for newborn, premature, and ill infants and their families. Specific objectives for this presentation are listed below.
Session Description: While skilled medical care is central to the process of readying a baby for discharge, neonatal nurses also serve a key role in promoting the resiliency of families getting ready for the arrival of their baby at home. The Family-Centered Care model is used to describe factors critical to enhancing the success of parents as they progress with their infant toward discharge. Practical and research-based nursing interventions are discussed that promote parent-infant bonding, parenting self-efficacy, parental self-care, coping skills, and access to social support. The relationship between family/marital support and the maintenance of healthy neonatal development will also be discussed.
