Description:

Neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) save the lives of many babies born prematurely or with life-threatening illnesses. The interventions and experiences that are part of this care leave lasting effects on the newborn and its family long after discharge. This workshop will chronicle a typical NICU journey and investigate the impact of early hospitalization and intensive medical intervention on all areas of a neonate’s development, and on the experience of the parents, siblings, and extended family system.
