When a baby is born prematurely and needs to be hospitalized in the NICU it is an overwhelming experience for families. And when families with premature babies come from multicultural backgrounds, this experience is often even more challenging. In this session, Ashley Randolph will talk about the unique needs of parents of color in the NICU, including how cultural factors impact how a family responds to the NICU experience. She will review how NICU professionals and families can establish a relationship with all families that is based on trust, mutual respect, and positive consistent communication. You will be introduced to the skills, tools, and resources to deliver more equitable care in the NICU.
