Leadership by Design

During this time, Ms. Smith-Beatty discusses some common leadership types, qualities, and core values that effective leaders use. She also reviews strategies to avoid common pitfalls and provides you with practical tools you can use to help you become the effective leader you want to be!

Special Delivery: Newborn Care and Health Supervision of the Infant with Trisomy 21

Touch a Life, Impact a Lifetime: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Newborn Care
Mary Coughlin, MS, NNP, RNC-E
Infants make meaning out of the world based on how the world makes them feel, expressed through activation of the autonomic nervous system, limbic system and cerebellum. Investigators have shown that infants are highly attuned to the world including the people around them. Adopting a trauma-informed paradigm invites the clinician to look beyond the infant’s clinical condition and see their biopsychosocial competencies as fellow human beings, with rudimentary intentions and emotions trying to make meaning out of their life in relation to the world around them.
