    • Each learner will define NAM.
    • Each learner will list feeding trials and tribulations associated with NAM.
    • Each learner will identify strategies to improve NAM care.

      Thank you for sharing your knowledge in this area. I have worked with parents in the past who have had infants with cleft lip and palate. Often, these parents were very young and overwhelmed by the amount of care and commitment it took with their child. What were the ages of the parents you interviewed? Also I am in full support of the qualitative research method. It is so important for us as nurses to have a better understanding of what the parents go through when we recommend specific interventions or treatments.

    Emily,I was surprised of the prevalance of CP. AS such, this makes this a very important topic for all child-bearing families, particularly those with children with a similar types of issues. I thought your themes were interesting. I think it would be interesting to have a follow up poster with evidence-based strategies for parents needing nursing/health provider support

    This was a very interesting poster with great qualitative data! Unfortunately the theme of the poster is not relative to my professional life but I will keep NAM in mind for my personal life given the incidence of CL/P.

    I was able to meet your stated objective after viewing poster. Your knowledge of this subject area is commendable. Thank you for increasing my awareness of the topic!

    Hello Emily,

    I really enjoyed reading your poster and found your study very interesting. Understanding the patient-family experience using a phenomenological approach is particularly important as healthcare delivery transforms from a disease-specific approach to a patient-family centered care.
    As nurses we play a very important role in improving the patient-family experience and outcomes as a member of the interprofessional team.
