Family and Infant Neurodevelopmental Education (FINE): An innovative, high quality, educational pathway for neonatal healthcare professionals.

Abstract

Family and Infant Neurodevelopmental Education (FINE) is an innovative step-by-step pathway designed to enable neonatal professionals to put the theory and evidence behind infant and family centred, developmentally supportive care into practice. FINE is an international, multidisciplinary programme that makes quality controlled education and training widely accessible and adaptable to many settings. FINE is closely linked to the more advanced NIDCAP training model but aims to support all approaches to early developmental intervention in neonatal care.  The basic principles, core themes, and step by step agenda of FINE are outlined.
