NANT Conference 2014 in Atlanta

Just returned from the National Association of Neonatal Therapists Conference in Atlanta. My presentation “The Advanced Clinician in Neonatal Swallowing/Feeding: Taking It to the Next Level was well-received. It shared the multiple ways we add value and how we can articulate the need for our involvement in the NICU. In July I’ll be expanding this topic for my newest seminar “The Advanced Clinician in Pediatric Dysphagia: Taking It to the Next level” in Dallas. I am excited about this seminar as it will be the springboard for Hot Topics, clinical reasoning with complex patients and case discussions including those attendees bring. Check out the details in my 2014 brochure on my website http://www.Shaker4SwallowingandFeeding.com

The NANT conference was wonderful and packed full of information about our NICU babies and the work we do as NICU therapists. I had the opportunity to share my passion with Lynn Wolf and Robin Glass over good food, which was a highlight of the weekend. Wolf and Glass shared their new methodology for when feeding on HFNC (high flow nasal cannulae) might be considered and the clinical reasoning that is essential in decision-making. We also heard the latest on bubble CPAP, kangaroo care and developmental outcomes. All very interesting. I’ll bring highlights from the NANT conference to my NICU and Cue-based Feeding seminars in 2014. I hope to see you this year! Catherine
