Other Important Considerations
When working with NICU families we should remember: Each family is unique.
Every family has their own distinct needs, values, and priorities.
This section discusses some important topics to consider when doing discharge planning.
We are mindful of families who:
are limited in their English proficiency
are active military
are headed by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) parents
are culturally and/or philosophically distinct in ways that need to be considered in NICU discharge transition planning
This list is not comprehensive. We will continue to build this section and add new insights, recommendations, and resources as they are developed.
