Our Collaborative

 Consists of several level 2 Special Care Nurseries (SCNs) and level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) across Massachusetts. Each participating NICU has a leadership team that consists of multidisciplinary teams who are passionate about improving the adherence of evidence-based family engagement practices and reducing health disparities in NICU settings.  

We encourage connections among members on our collaborative. We have created a listserv to support our teams! Feel free to use our Listserv at neoqicfamilies-list@bu.edu
