Title: Using evidence to individualise our support for parents expressing milk in the NICU.

With: Dr Ilana Levene

When: Tuesday, 6th February

Time: 10-11.30am

Where: Virtual

Who: Open access event. Free for NNA members. £10 for non-members

About our speaker:

Dr Ilana Levene has just completed a PhD related to breastmilk expression after very preterm birth at the University of Oxford. She is a neonatal registrar on the GRID training programme in the Thames Valley and co-chair of the Hospital Infant Feeding Network.

About the session:

Dr Levene will present a research project she has recently completed where she studied how around 100 mothers of very preterm babies expressed milk over the first three weeks after birth, and then their later breastfeeding outcomes. Using this data she will explore the relationships of how often people express, the pattern of expressing sessions over 24 hours, the amount of milk people can express, and their breastfeeding outcomes. She will look at what this means for neonatal nurses on the ground supporting families with milk expression. The key question she will look at is, what information can we give families to better understand the standard recommendations around expressing, and their own individual risk factors and journey? There will be no complicated statistics, and questions/discussion are welcomed!

Why our standards are important 

Our education and training standards help nursing, midwifery and nursing associate students achieve the NMC standards of proficiency and programme outcomes.

 

All nursing, midwifery and nursing associate professionals must practise in line with the requirements of the Code, the professional standards of practice and behaviour that nurses, midwives and nursing associates are expected to uphold.

 

The standards for education and training includes the Standards framework for nursing and midwifery education, Standards for student supervision and assessment, and programme standards specific to each approved programme.

 

Our standards for education and training are set out in three parts:
