Neonatal Nutrition Support

Green Clock Hours: 10.00

More than 380,000 babies are born prematurely each year in the U.S. according to 2016 data from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). This correlates to just under 1 in every 10 babies born in the U.S. Factors contributing to the increased survival of premature infants include prenatal corticosteroid therapy and early surfactant therapy to reduce the incidence of respiratory distress syndrome. Nutrition therapy plays a vital role in minimizing morbidity and mortality and optimizing growth and development.

The goal of this course is to provide registered dietitian nutritionists in the NICU with increased skill level, competence, and confidence using evidence-based practice guidelines that demonstrate the application of cutting-edge methods for providing optimal nutrition support.
