Purpose & Objectives
This program is designed to provide state-of-the-art information on obstetric and newborn care practices, and is of particular importance and value to obstetric and newborn care nurses, nurse practitioners, midwives, family physicians, physician assistants, obstetricians, pediatricians, and allied perinatal health care professionals. After attending the conference, participants should be able to: 1) Describe the process to implement individual and population-based systems of care that are irrespective of the consumer’s race, age, culture and outcomes-based research. 2) Discuss the design plans of inpatient and outpatient care for implementation by designated healthcare professionals, which address the unique nutritional, developmental, psychosocial, nursing and medical needs of mothers and infants. 3) Develop personal goals that will promote a positive outlook on their role as an essential member of the perinatal healthcare team. Successful completion of this activity requires that participants turn in all evaluation materials for attended sessions.
