New guidelines; diagnostic, treatment and monitoring advances; ethical dilemmas; anticipating and preventing complications; optimal patient comfort; staff/family interactions — these are just some of the challenges at the heart of caring for critically ill neonates. Keeping up with these changes and coordinating all facets of the care plan, from treating the disease process to meeting the diverse needs of the family, can turn daily practice into a balancing act. Yet our goal remains constant — to provide the best possible care to our vulnerable patients. Join us at the 31st Annual National Conference of Neonatal Nursing, where clinical experts will share their extensive knowledge and experience, and encourage thought-provoking discussions and problem-solving. Whether you’re a nurse new to this specialty or an experienced clinician, the knowledge you gain will help you think critically and practice safely. Return to work energized and with increased confidence in the excellent care you provide! Conference Objectives Participation in this program will enable you to: • Identify the physiologic basis of assessment, interventions and management of complex newborn diseases. • Explore common complications in the critically ill neonate and discuss prevention and treatment strategies. • Improve communication and support tech- niques with the families of NICU patients. • Identify examples of evidence-based practice projects for your unit, implement a plan to begin the process, and understand the potential impact on care as a result of project findings. • Describe ethical, legal and controversial practice dilemmas encountered in the care of critically ill neonates.

PRECONFERENCE B Brain Care Sunday, June 23 Focused brain care is essential when caring for infants at risk for brain injury, including cerebral palsy, seizures and cognitive deficits. Multidisciplinary neurological assessments, cerebral function monitoring and diagnostic modalities such as ultrasound and MRI enable clinicians to comprehensively evaluate an infant’s neurological status and determine the best possible treatment regime. Research continues to lead to innovative approaches to the management of these fragile babies. Our internationally renowned faculty for this dynamic Preconference joins us from the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital’s Neurointensive Care Nursery (NICN), which opened in 2008 as one of the first neuro-critical care units in the country. With a dedicated approach to brain care, the NICN’s goal is to improve neurological and neurodevelopmental outcomes for very premature infants and full-term babies at risk for brain injury.
