Abstract:

Discharge teaching programs are typically established based on what we as health care providers think parents need to know. Reality sets in very quickly for families after taking home a premature newborn. Despite thorough discharge teaching and parent involvement in hospital, parents are surprised by the challenges they face post-discharge. Feeding, behavior, reflux, sleep, and parenting troubles top the list. Based on over twenty years’ experience working with premature infants and their families beyond discharge, the presenter will reveal common challenges encountered and discuss research-based and practical strategies for the NICU team to share with parents to smooth the transition home. A greater knowledge of post discharge sequelae and preventative strategies will aid the NICU team in optimizing the discharge process and ultimately improve outcomes for babies and parents.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Describe common challenges that premature babies and parents experience beyond the NICU

Objective 2: Demonstrate anticipatory guidance to share during NICU discharge teaching

Objective 3: List five key tips to enhance neonatal outcomes and parent preparation for challenges at home
