The NICU experience is at best traumatic. Despite the lifesaving nature of the services provided in this highly technologically driven setting, one must not lose sight of the primary purpose of healthcare. Healthcare is much more than a focus on survival. The fundamental purpose of healthcare is to enhance the quality of life by enhancing health. According to the WHO, health is not simply the absence of disease but a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. Transforming the experience of care in the NICU for babies and families begins with the individual healthcare professional. The evolution of neonatology and medicine at large has taken us further and further away from our shared humanity and into a place where our patients and even ourselves are reduced to parts and functions. Reconnecting with our own story, our values and beliefs creates a bridge that restores our collective consciousness. When we can see ourselves in others, we open the door for more compassionate and loving encounters. This new vision enables us to serve at our highest level, increasing our job satisfaction as we ease the suffering of others, which, in turn reduces our own experience of compassion fatigue and burnout. This session will present the biology of trauma and how these experiences can be mitigated and buffered through authentic caring relationships grounded by love.
