TRANSPORT WEBINAR

Bringing the principles and practices of developmental and family centred care into Neonatal Transport; challenges and opportunities.

Replicating the environment of the neonatal care unit can be challenging in the transport setting. The process itself often requires many interventions and a lot of handling, and the ambulance provides a very different environment to the hospital setting. Despite this, we should still look closely at our practice and see where we may be able to look at improving the baby’s experience. The benefits may well impact the babies, the parents, and even the staff involved with transport.  

This webinar will explore people’s experience and perceptions around integrating the principles of developmental care into the transport setting. We will explore some current practices and discuss what the future may hold to improve this important element of neonatal care.  

We will also cover some interesting case reviews, to explore clinical factors, as well as logistical and team working challenges. We can use our own experiences to explore common themes, and perhaps prompt discussions where we work as to our approach to similar situations.
