Abstract

Results of the survey indicate that current training and education to work in an NICU is inadequate and needs to be addressed. Occupational therapists working in NICUs desire and express the need for specialized training to work in this practice area. A more aggressive effort toward standard NICU education and training is necessary to ensure that occupational therapists are competent members of the NICU team.
