Reflects a dramatic evolution in the concept of trauma-informed care in the NICU.Substantially revised and updated, the new edition of this acclaimed resource for neonatal nurse practitioners and NICU clinicians remains the only book to provide the most current, evidence-based caring strategies for managing current and later-life trauma associated with the NICU experience. This second edition builds on the foundation established in the first: trauma-informed care begins with the clinician. Aimed at transforming NICU practice, the second edition delivers five completely new chapters that reflect state-of-the-art developments in neonatal care and the changing role of the NICU clinician.
Transformative Nursing in the NICU, Second Edition provides an in-depth examination of the biological effects of neonatal trauma, changes to the neuro-endocrine-immune network, and epigenetics, as well as the foundations of caring science in the NICU. Brimming with practical strategies and evidence-based core measures, the book describes protocols proven to mitigate or reduce the profound neonatal morbidities and subsequent challenges afflicting newborns in the NICU. It includes examples of favorable outcomes from practitioners worldwide and presents engaging online learning activities that facilitate the translation of content into clinical practice.
