You will also be invited to join our closed FaceBook Group - The TRIBE
The Tribe is an international group of likeminded, heart-centered professionals who are passionate about being the change for their patients, their practice and themselves. Coming together, this group will discover and discuss cutting edge research to inform and guide the development of best practices that protect the psych-socio-emotional integrity of the hospitalized infant and begin to outline quality measures and performance expectations to preserve the full potential of the vulnerable individuals we are called to serve in the NICU!
A master class group call is hosted every other month to support group discussion, discovery, and community as participants begin to translate knowledge into clinical practice (all calls will be recorded and posted to the member site). These calls are scheduled for the third (3rd) Thursday of each even numbered month at 1pm ET.
In addition, a private 30-minute 1:1 call is available to master class learners, to be scheduled at the learners convenience, every other odd numbered month. A special access link is provided upon registration to schedule your calls.
The program has been awarded 12 contact hours in accordance with 244 CMR 5.04 Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing.
Birth and becoming a family are defining moments in a person's life; how we show up to these miracle moments defines us!
