The NFI promotes
the advancement of the philosophy and science of NIDCAP care
and assures the quality of NIDCAP education, training, mentoring and certification
for professionals and hospital systems.
The NFI envisions a global society
in which all hospitalized newborns and their families
receive care in the evidence-based NIDCAP model.
NIDCAP supports development,
enhances strengths and minimizes stress
for infants, family and staff who care for them.
NIDCAP is individualized
and uses a relationship-based, family-integrated approach
that yields measurable outcomes.
