Abstract

Providing nursing care in the highly technical environment of the neonatal intensive care unit is changing as concepts of developmentally supportive caregiving merge with conventional nursing interventions and are integrated into routine practice. Medical knowledge with the use of technology is insufficient in guiding the whole of neonatal nursing care. Integration of other patterns and concepts is essential to expert nursing practice with high risk infants and their families.
