Building awareness of the importance of providing NIDCAP care for premature and ill newborns and infants and their families

  • World NIDCAP Day is an opportunity to recognize the efforts of our NIDCAP Training Centers, their NIDCAP Trainers and NIDCAP Trained Professionals and Supporters who strive to improve the experience of newborns and families in hospitals all over the world
  • To build awareness of the importance of providing NIDCAP care for hospitalized infants and their families
  • Acknowledging our global work on the same day each year raises attention for NIDCAP and promotes opportunities for everyone to discuss NIDCAP and why it matters
  • By acknowledging and celebrating the incredible number of years we have been active in newborn hospital settings, we help to further promote the work, influence and place for NIDCAP within the global newborn community
  • For nearly four decades the NIDCAP community has partnered with families to improve newborn outcomes
