The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
The Resilient NICU
The Resilient NICU is an interactive online course developed for medical teams working in the NICU. It recognizes that caring for an infant also entails equipping their family to provide a nurturing environment for their child. The provision of family-integrated care that is sensitive to medical trauma and fosters family resilience allows care teams to provide infants with the best possible start to life. This self-guided course highlights common experiences of NICU families and teaches strategies that alleviate the impact of trauma on families, ourselves, and our NICU colleagues.
