Engage an NFI speaker to motivate and inspire your audience

Our Speakers Bureau provides you with a list of our members who are representatives of the NIDCAP model, practice, training program and science, and/or family hospital experience. Our members are approved through an NFI application process to speak on NIDCAP-related topics. 

We encourage you to invite one of our members to speak at your next event, conference, or workshop.

Below is a sample of presentation topics:

  • Developmental care using NIDCAP
  • The NIDCAP Training Program
  • NIDCAP in the NICU
  • NIDCAP in Cardiology
  • Research underlying the NIDCAP approach
  • Family Support
  • Understanding Infant Behavior

Interested event organizers should contact potential speakers directly. Once you select a speaker from NFI’s Speakers Bureau, all speaking details are negotiated solely between your organization and the requested speaker, including travel expenses and any honorarium. The NFI is not involved in these negotiations.
