The CNNN was established in 2017 as a grass-roots group of professionals interested in collaboration around care of the newborn CHD population. In 2020, they joined CNOC as the inaugural SIG with a focus on promoting individualized developmental care in the inpatient setting for newborns with CHD. The CNNN is a multidisciplinary group representing many disciplines (physicians, nursing, speech/language pathology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, feeding therapy, psychology, and family members of individuals with CHD), and they are excited about accepting new members.
To date, the CNNN has focused their work in three areas: 1) Quality improvement, 2) Infant neurodevelopmental assessment, and 3) Oral feeding skill development, and they have sub-committees in each area. The CNNN has published one paper and have presented at international meetings. They are interested in continuing to collaborate on professional manuscripts and presentations as well as developing educational tools for providers.
The CNNN meets regularly and has an active listserv. Click here for more information. Before joining, please complete the appropriate CNOC member application by clicking the home page, select the Membership tab, then select the appropriate application from the dropdowns.
