    How to support parents in the NICU? – A parent perspective

    Join us for a eSeminar with Silke Mader, Chairwoman of the Executive Board and co-founder of the European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI).

    Silke Mader will introduce the mission and selected projects of the European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI). Welcoming parents and the family 24 hours a day and 7 days a week in the NICU is the optimal way to encourage the family´s relationship with their newborn.

    However, it may not always be possible for all family members to visit the baby. In these cases, web camera systems in the NICU allow virtual visitation of the hospitalised infant by parents and other family members.

    Learning objectives

    • understand the importance of welcoming the family in the NICU and the relevance and advantages of family-centred and – integrated developmental care
    • explore the perspective of all involved groups in the course of the implementation of virtual visitation technologies: the newborn infant, parents and family members, nurses and doctors, and the hospital
    • gain knowledge about the challenges and requirements of implementing virtual visitation technologies

    Silke Mader is the Chairwoman of the Executive Board and co-founder of the European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI). Her professional background lies in elementary educational theory, mainly focusing on the linguistic support of migrant children and remedial educational theory.

    In 1997, her twins were born in the 25th week of pregnancy, and were not given the appropriate care. Unfortunately, one of them died a few days after birth, leaving the parents and the sibling behind. During her time in hospital and afterwards, she was faced with the non-existence of support of any kind, the absence of public awareness and the lack of information and education for parents. She felt that no parents should ever undergo such an awful experience again. Therefore, in 1999, she decided to actively participate in the Munich-based local parent group, which she headed from 2001 on. Two years later, she became Chairwoman of the German umbrella organisation “The preterm born child e. V.”. Together with experts, Silke developed declarations, guidelines and information material for parents with preterm children.

    As the situation throughout Europe is distressingly similar and preterm children urgently need a voice not only within Europe but also worldwide, she decided to give up her job as a teacher and to take on the role of chair of the Executive Board of EFCNI.

    Since its establishment in 2008, EFCNI has grown into a renowned organisation and advocate for preterm babies, ill newborns and their parents in Europe and meanwhile even beyond.
