JGR22-622 AAP TECaN National Advocacy Campaign: 'Bereavement of NICU families' (050422)
This 10-Part virtual/on-demand webinar series will bring together experts from across the nation to discuss topics related to NICU family mental health and wellness. Parental mental health needs are extremely prevalent in the NICU. Despite the high needs and impact on child and family outcomes, most NICUs do not currently have a standard of care to address familial mental health. Our purpose through the National AAP TECaN Carousel Care Campaign is to educate NICU providers across all scopes of practice on how to identify and address family wellness needs. This session will focus on the needs of parents who leave the NICU without their child. During this webinar, we will review how the experience of child loss in the NICU affects families and how healthcare providers can be most effective in providing compassionate, supportive care to the entire family.
This activity is appropriate for Providers, Advanced Practitioners, Nurses that specialize in Critical Care Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Palliative Care, Pediatrics and/or Psychiatry as well as and other Healthcare professionals with an interest in addressing NICU familial mental health and wellness needs.
- Consider parents’ perspectives on their experiences in the NICU around the time of their child’s death.
- Discuss ways we can better meet parents’ needs in end of life care and bereavement.
- Review useful communication tools to aide in compassionate delivery of care.
