One of the main challenges in delivering infant and family centred developmental care is managing change. Although FINE 3 incorporates then same key principles and themes as other FINE courses it places more emphasis on systems organisation with the aim of facilitating change management.

Project based learning is used to explore families’ experience of neonatal care and to implement a quality improvement plan. A detailed assessment of infant and family centred developmental care is carried out on the unit using the NIDCAP Nursery Scales. Project work is disseminated through live or on-line meetings, seminars or conferences, or is submitted for publication.

Who is this course for: This course will be open to those who have completed FINE Level 2 or NIDCAP Certification and who have an active role on a neonatal unit. It is suitable for nurses, doctors, and allied health professionals. Participants will need to be computer literate and have access to the internet and an academic library. There must be evidence of management support and a pre-course interview may be required.

What is provided: Information in the course handbook helps to structure projects and  an experienced mentor who is a NIDCAP professional with leadership and management experience is provided. If practical, mentors make one or more site visits as well as offering regular contact for guidance.
