Abstract:

There is ample evidence that Family-Centered Developmental Care in the NICU results in improved neonatal and neurodevelopmental outcomes, increased family satisfaction and even enhanced employee satisfaction once the culture change has been accomplished. However, implementing the known principles of Family-Centered Developmental Care in the NICU to create those culture changes has long been a challenge. Several models of implementing developmental care have been tried and met with varying challenges and degrees of success. The Seven Neuroprotective Core Measures of Family-Centered Developmental Care in the Neonatal Integrative Developmental Care Model has been trialed in our NICU for the past three years and has proven to be effective as a tool to bring about staff buy-in and engagement in the process of implementing Family-Centered Developmental Care principles into the culture of our NICU.
