The FINE programme

The Family and Infant Neurodevelopmental Education (FINE) programme is a unique educational pathway in family-centred developmental care that is suitable for all disciplines in any neonatal centre.

FINE offers high quality training in this approach which supports and improves the outcomes for babies and families in neonatal care.

The programme includes the following themes:

  • pre-term and newborn neurodevelopment
  • parent/infant relationships and the parental journey
  • observing and understanding infant behaviour
  • managing stress and pain
  • sensorimotor experience in the neonatal unit
  • baby-led feeding
  • and kangaroo care

An infant and family-centred developmental care approach has better outcomes for babies and families in neonatal care. FINE offers high quality training in this approach
which is suitable for anyone working in neonatology.

Thank you for such an inspiring two days. The profound difference that we can effect with these babies is humbling and it is good to be reminded.
