Perspectives on the Care of Infants with the Trisomy 13 and 18 Syndromes
John Carey, MD, MPH
The care of newborns and young infants with the trisomy 13 and 18 syndromes remains laden with controversy. The conventional wisdom of the last 4 decades has been to hold off on technological interventions and surgery, especially cardiac surgery. This traditional approach is based on views of the quality of like in surviving children with the syndromes. Recent trends, including published data on survival and surgery and a changing worldview propelled by parents, has led to a shift in the paradigm of care in these conditions. The speaker will review the history and medical aspects of the 2 syndromes and delve into the current discourse.

Neonatal Stem Cell Transplant and Neuroprotection
C. Michael Cotten, MD, MHS
Hypothermia has become the standard of care for infants with moderate to severe hypoxic ischemic enceophalopathy; however, in the multiple clinical trials demonstrating the safety and efficacy of hypothermia, a high percentage of cooled infants with HIE die or survive with disability. Several clinical trials examing new therapies are underway. Dr. Cotton reviews preclinical data and discusses the status of the early stage clinical trials.

Tipping Point: When is There Enough Evidence?

New research appears all the time. As evidence mounts favoring a change in how a condition is treated, how does one decide when to actually change practice? Dr. Narvey looks at some illustrative examples of how difficult changing practice can be and offers an approach to thinking through changes in the future.

Healing the Healers: Cultivating Mindfulness and Building Compassionate Health Care Communities
David Sandweiss, MD
Marc Potter, LCSW
The American health care system has been undergoing seismic change, affecting all aspects of care. Political, economic, technological, educational, corporate, and cultural shifts have left many in the healing professions feeling anxious and untethered, questioning the very meaning of their careers, and placing them at significant risk of burnout. Our speakers discuss how cultivating a mindfulness practice can enhance personal wellbeing, meaning, and connection to patients and colleagues. They address some of the emerging science in this area and highlight techniques individuals and teams can adopt to build resilient, highly functioning teams.

Filmmaker, photographer, and author Carolyn Jones has spent the past 10 years interviewing more than 200 nurses from every corner of the U.S. in an effort to better understand the role of nurses in the healthcare system. Carolyn shares stories of her experience as a patient—her first and most personal introduction to a nurse's impact—followed by stories of nurses she interviewed and photographed for The American Nurse Project, Defining Hope. Carolyn presents an outsider-looking-in perspective with the goal of inspiring others to think of nurses in a way that they may never have before.
