Update and improve your neonatal and newborn intensive care unit (NICU) nursing know-how, with the evidence-based Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants, 3rd Edition. This leading text on developmentally supportive care of infants and their families addresses the full spectrum of neonatal care, from prenatal planning to delivery, plus neonatal intensive care and the transition to home. 
The book presents developmental care in terms of holistic awareness of infant and family and their interactions with the NICU environment. It offers a framework for providing care that protects and supports the neurobehavioral development of the infant using an interdisciplinary approach. 
In short, Developmental Care of Newborns and Infants, 3rd Edition is the definitive guide for learning current care standards, and the ideal foundation for neonatal nurses, students, and NICU nurses.
