Golden Hours: Care of the Very Low Birth Weight Infant - CE series.

The "Golden Hours" of care refers to the unique care of very low birth weight (VLBW) babies in the first few hours of life. VLBW babies comprise the majority of high-risk deliveries. Even when these infants are vigorous and crying, pink and well-perfused, they are at risk. Decisions made in the first hours of life can result in a smooth transition to extrauterine life or can hasten and worsen maladaptation.

Developed from the well received NCC publication "Golden Hours: Care of the Very Low Birth Weight Infant", each individual book chapter module offers 2 hours of CE for only $8. Due to the popularity of the Golden Hour CE modules, expiration on these CE modules has been extended to 12/31/2017.

You do not need to purchase the printed book to have access to this unique CE opportunity.  Each $8 CE module purchase places a PDF of the chapter that you can print for your personal use into your NCC account.

There are no refunds, exchanges or transfers for NCC CE modules.
