ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: Ongoing educational programming designed to provide nurses with practical knowledge and application resources is key to ensuring the highest quality of care for newborns, infants, and toddlers, as well as to provide knowledgeable recommendations and guidance to mothers. Through a review of evidence-based medicine, the faculty will discuss current data surrounding neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), legal and ethical considerations that may govern limits of viability, and current approaches in donor breast milk and neonatal nutrition. Presentations will also provide an overview of key factors that impact patient satisfaction and how to reason and deal with people in challenging situations and techniques for coping with them.
