A Deeper Look: Deconstructing Real Case Studies

A Deeper Look: Deconstructing Real Case Studies

You will be asked to make observations, offer advice, make recommendations, and create care plans. The six case studies include babies of various ages, from a 26-week preterm baby in the NICU to a 12-week-old whose parent is returning to work, with a wide range of presenting issues. A clear, effective framework and tools for evaluating each situation is presented. You’ll be asked to think critically, access your background knowledge, and use written and online resources to decide how to help. Once you choose a plan of action, the results of your advice are presented–and you can choose and explore other plans of care.

Welcome back to Ready to Respond, our blog mini-series on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IYCF-E). This time, we’re talking about infant feeding toolkits, and what belongs inside them. When disaster strikes, having a few simple items available can mean the difference for a lactating parent and their baby or child. What are they? Some you can probably intuit–others may surprise you. Item 1: ...
