We set up the Integrated Family Delivered Neonatal Care (IFDC) project to help parents in their NICU journey in the ethos of family integrated care. All the materials were created and designed by our multidisciplinary team together with a veteran parent group. It took us time and resources to get here. We are always keen to collaborate, so here you can find all elements of the IFDC care bundle including our publications.
