Supporting parents and the needs of high-risk babies - webinar on 25 January 2022

On Tuesday, 25th of January 2022 you can join a webinar by the Royal Society of Medicine, presenting a new multidisciplinary approach to working with parents and high-risk infants, along with up-to-date research on the outcomes and neurodevelopment needs of high-risk, premature, and sick infants.

Leaders in developmental psychology, children's occupational therapy, neuroscience, and neonatology will provide insightful presentations on approaches you can take to provide parental support and meet the developmental needs of high-risk babies in neonatal units. The latest research about sleep in high-risk babies, and outcomes of high-risk babies into adulthood will be addressed. You will also hear from a parent with first-hand experience of this approach and how it worked for them.

During this webinar you will learn about:

  • The outcomes of babies born early and sick into adulthood
  • New interventions to support parents and high-risk infants in the neonatal units using a multidisciplinary, coordinated approach
  • Sleep and brain development in order to provide high-risk babies the optimal environment
