About the Course:
This 2-day course will introduce medical doctors, osteopaths, physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals to the osteopathic approach to evaluation and care of preterm infants into the neonatal intensive care unit setting.
Through the study of touch as substrate for interacting with the newborns, participants will acquire knowledge on how to establish a contact with preterm infants, how to osteopathically evaluate them and how to treat them using different approaches. In addition to the osteopathic hands-on element of the course, attendees will be introduced to the major clinical consequences of prematurity and critically discuss the impacts, sequalae and long term effects of premature birth.
