From the Editors

In this issue of Advances in Neonatal Care we have some very interesting articles. The most exciting to us is an article related to an NIH study that has received national attention. Medoff-Cooper and her colleagues report about their significant results with a multisensory intervention for preterm infants and improvements on growth and feeding outcomes over the course of the NICU hospitalization. These are thought-provoking results so we hope you will take the time to read the whole article. Skin breakdown is a growing area of concern with the increased prevalence and duration of nasal CPAP use. Vance has begun the work to better understand this important phenomenon in her Delphi study. Other articles include a study related to sleep, temperament, and problem solving (Judge et al.), and a cost analysis comparing staffing with neonatal nurse practitioners and neonatologists to an only-neonatologist care model (Bosque). Both articles provide insightful information. Please also take the time to read our editorial about writing for publication and the use of tables, boxes, and graphs in your work. Beginning in 2015, we made several formatting changes to Advances in Neonatal Care; we would love your feedback on this editorial or any of the articles in this issue. Thanks for reading Advances in Neonatal Care.

Multisensory Intervention for Preterm Infants Improves Sucking Organization

An intervention to teach mothers of preterm infants how to interact with their babies more effectively results in better weight gain and growth for the infants. This Advances in Neonatal Care article shows that infants who receive this intervention grow better and also more rapidly develop the muscle control needed for successful feeding.
