      Join our webinar - Unpicking the evidence for nurse staffing in the NICU: What is optimal and what is the impact?
      With two leading experts in this field, Chiara Dall’Ora at the University of Southampton / UK, and Eileen T. Lake at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing / US.
      Bookmark Wednesday 14 October 16:00 CET.
      You can register for the event here.
      Many of our 99NICU subscribers will have experienced first-hand the challenges of staffing the NICU, being aware of the short-term impact nurse staffing can have both on patient care and staff morale.
      During this 2nd 99NICU Webinar, we will explore the wider impact of nurse staffing on patient outcomes and review what the evidence suggests are potential strategies for optimising staffing. Supported by the latest research from experts in their field, we encourage you to interact with our speakers with a live Q&A session.  
      We look forward to welcoming you to the 2nd 99NICU webinar!
      Chiara Dall’Ora is a lecturer at the University Of Southampton. Her research mainly entails designing and performing large workforce studies using quantitative routinely collected data, focusing in particular on nurses’ shift patterns and staffing levels. Chiara qualified as a Registered Nurse in Italy and, after pursuing a MSc in Nursing and Midwifery Sciences, she completed her PhD within Health Sciences in 2017.
      Eileen Lake has made a significant impact on nursing care practice through research on clinical work environments and nurse staffing levels in hospitals. She currently is a professor of nursing and sociology, the Jessie M. Scott Endowed Term Chair in Nursing and Health Policy, and associate director of the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Eileen Lake has developed a foundational measure/index of nursing care performance to demonstrate nursing’s impact on patient outcomes. This index provides scientific evidence that health care settings that capitalize on nurses’ education and skills achieve higher quality outcomes.

    • the first 99nicu Webinar - assistant professor Nathan C. Sundgren will lecture on Delayed Cord Clamping, on May 14, 2020 16:00 (CEST)
      Nathan C. Sundgren, MD, PhD, is medical director of neonatal resuscitation education and assistant professor of Neonatology at Texas Children's Hospital, Houston, Texas, USA. He is concerned about all things related to delivery room care and has published quality improvement work and clinical trials related to delivery room team communication and performance of resuscitation. As an educator, he seeks to use global platforms to spread information on neonatal resuscitation such as on his YouTube channel "TexSun NeoEd." 
      This is our first webinar, and if it works well, we aim to run a series of educational webinars during 2020. Stay tuned!

    • I am really sorry to announce that we have decided to cancel our conference Future of Neonatal Care, AKA #99nicuMeetup. 
      The reason is the spreading of the Covid-19 virus in Europe and the uncertainties related to this.  If viral infections increase (currently a likely scenario), we may be forced to cancel at much shorter notice. Given the non-profit nature of the 99nicu community, we have no financial backup to manage a late cancellation.
      I was myself emailed yesterday by staff in some European citys that their hospitals had stopped all travels abroad for their employees.
      We are really sorry about this unexpected development.
      For delegates, speakers and partners directly affected by this decision: we are in discussions with the University of Vienna regarding practical details and implications of cancelling and will communicate back directly next week with more information.
      While we are now only focusing on getting through the current situation, we also believe that the Covid-19 pandemic will settle with time. Consequently, we hope to for a "Return of the Meetup" in 2021.

      Thank you for your understanding and support.
