Taking the evidenced-based case for kangaroo care into the clinical setting (2013)

Kangaroo care is a powerful intervention for both
preterm and full-term infants. It has numerous proven benefits for newborns and parents. While the technique is used worldwide and is growing in the United States, uptake remains slow. In this compelling educational webinar viewers learn the many reasons kangaroo care should be offered early and often in NICUs, including its role as a pain mitigator and the challenges to making it consistently available. Concrete strategies are offered to increase kangaroo care opportunities for all babies and families.
