Friday Fast Five - meet Zahra Godzari

Each month we interview individuals associated with the Australasian NIDCAP Training Centre and the broader NIDCAP Federation International (NFI) community, asking them five questions that explore their association with our unit and NIDCAP.

This month, meet Zahra Godzari, Nurse Educator and NIDCAP Professional from Valiasr and Shahid Akbarabadi Hospital in Iran.

How long have you been associated with the NIDCAP Federation International (NFI)?

I have been part of the NFI From 2014.

What is your role in the NIDCAP international community?

I am proud to be a member of the NFI as a NIDCAP Certified Professional, of course with the help of Dr. ALS.

In your opinion how does NIDCAP potentially benefit neonates, families and staff?

It is very useful for premature newborns and their parents, especially the premature babies to have care delivered by their parents.

What has been the most meaningful learning for you during your NIDCAP journey?

What I have learned from Dr. ALS, the premature care is Humanitarian care that is the best subject for me. Now I'm honored that I can understand more about premature newborn and brain care as the aim of NIDCAP.

What do you hope NIDCAP training centres achieve now and in the future?

NIDCAP training centres continue with their success in education and support for staff and families in the neonatal unit.
