Please participate in a 10-minute survey will further our understanding. The results will provide information on current usage of complementary therapies, perceptions of the therapies' safety and efficacy, and the knowledge base of the NICU interprofessional team.

Nurses' Attitudes and Beliefs on Family-Centered Care Practices in the NICU

The NICU is a complex, technology-driven environment where nurses have many tasks to accomplish each day to meet the physiologic needs of critically ill infants who require advanced care. Parent-infant relationships are influenced by interactions during these early-life experiences. The purpose of this study is to examine beliefs and perceptions implementing family-centered care (FCC) in the NICU. The deadline to participate in this study is Wednesday, May 20.
