Small Baby Care Specialist® (SBCS) Program

   Watch Promo

The micro-premature, extremely low birth weight and very low birth weight infants are at the highest risk to experience a prolonged hospital course, major morbidities, long-term neurodevelopmental challenges and family stress. Caring for the smallest babies in the NICU requires specialized interdisciplinary support focusing on evidence based interventions to enhance the NICU experience promoting improved outcomes for the infant, family and NICU team.

The Small Baby Care Specialist® Program was designed to encourage an interdisciplinary approach to care supported by evidence and best practice strategies. The Program is presented by an interdisciplinary expert faculty who share practical implementation of best practice clinical strategies so that you and your team can provide comprehensive coordinated care for this patient population.

The overarching goal of the program is to transform care provided by the interdisciplinary NICU team to improve the experience and outcome for the baby, family and NICU team.
