Family Integrated Care
is an approach to care in the NICU that fully involves the parents in all aspects of the baby’s care. The NPN believes this approach to the care of the infant and family should extend to all guidelines, research, policy, advocacy, education, and support where nothing is created for infants and their families without an equal partnership with NICU Parent Leaders.
