Neurodevelopmental Care SIG

Phone: 0456 645 261

The focus of the Neurodevelopmental Care SIG is to support the provision of family centred and developmentally supportive practices across neonatal settings in Australia. The goal is to promote consistency in the provision of neuroprotective developmental care strategies, and support best neurodevelopmental outcomes for vulnerable premature and sick infants. The NDC SIG aims to raise awareness in the neonatal setting of neuroprotective developmental care as a conscious individualised practice that is considered the best standard of care.

SIGs host education events throughout the year. These are posted on the events tab.
