Health and Cost Outcomes of Human Milk Feeding in the NICU

Presented by Paula Meier, PhD, RN, FAAN, this program combines a strong evidence base with resulting best practices to prioritize the feeding of human milk in the NICU. Cutting edge research from the Rush Mothers’ Milk Club NIH grant (Health Outcomes and Cost of Human Milk Feedings for VLBW Infants) will be presented along with implications for direct clinical practice. Additionally, the mechanistic underpinnings as to HOW human milk protects from morbidities—and the ways in which NICU practices impact these mechanisms—will be highlighted. NICU care providers’ “talking points” that take these complicated mechanisms to the bedside to impact out comes are featured.
