“Influence of Environment & Experience on Brain Development & Outcome in the Preterm Infant” – CE expires 2/12/2018
The Annenberg Center for Health Sciences with an education grant by Mead Johnson Nutrition present…“Influence of Environment and Experience on Brain Development and Outcome in the Preterm Infant”
An overview of factors that may alter brain development in the preterm infant. In addition to severe brain injury, increasing evidence indicates that a preterm infant’s experience in the neonatal intensive care unit impacts neurodevelopment and later outcomes. (From the Miami Neonatology 2015: Annual International Conference)
Learning Objectives | At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Recognize differences in brain development between preterm and full-term infants
- Identify factors other than brain injury that may impair normal brain development in preterm infants
- Describe how the neonatal intensive care unit experience impacts neurodevelopmental outcomes
