NICU GRAND ROUNDS: Long Term Care of the NICU Graduate

August 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

KRISTINA STILLWELL, MD
ASSISTANT CLINICAL PROFESSOR, UCSF DEPARTMENT OF PEDIATRICS

Presented ByKristina Stillwell, MD

According to the March of Dimes, nearly nine percent of infants born in California are premature. Premature infants, particular infants who are low-birth-weight need additional long-term medical and developmental care in the first years of life for optimal outcomes. While bedside teaching and collaboration between NICU staff and families in imperative during the NICU hospitalization, an informed and comfortable outpatient medical team consisting of the pediatrician or family  practice provider, subspecialists, therapists, as well as available community resources is necessary for the premature infant to thrive. In this talk we will discuss the array of challenges that an NICU graduate faces and optimal care practices that can be employed by outpatient providers.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Restate NICU prevalence and population in Monterey County
  • Describe education and preparation for NICU families while inpatient
  • Assess resources and services available to families of NICU graduates
  • Describe long-term post-discharge medical and developmental needs for premature infants
  • Review Niños High Risk Follow-Up Clinic at Natividad
