Kathi Salley RandallThe number of neuro-focused neonatal intensive care units (NeuroNICUs) is expanding globally. NeuroNICUs strive to integrate the latest in technology and research into practices that nurture vulnerable, developing brains. NANN is thrilled to partner with Kathi Salley Randall of Synapse Care Solutions and EEG Coach to deliver this year's preconference focused on transforming every NICU into a neuro-nurturing NICU. Participants will gain knowledge, inspiration, and a practical plan to reinvent bedside practices that can improve outcomes for all NICU infants and families.
