2019 Visiting Scholar Tour

Wednesday 23rd October 2019, Canberra
Invited Speaker: Dr Nancy Feeley, School of Nursing, McGill University, Canada

Dr. Feeley’s research focuses on the psychological well-being of, and resources available to, parents of very low birth-weight (VLBW) infants. She received the FRSQ Clinician Research Scholar Career Award for 2008 - 2012 for this work. She has conducted a clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of an intervention program to reduce anxiety and enhance the parenting behavior of mothers of VLBW infants, examined the responses of parents to the NICU environment, compared the responses of mothers and fathers, and examined post-traumatic stress symptoms in mothers of VLBW infants.
