Support is the final ACoRN chapter because it is an overarching component of stabilization. The chapter emphasizes that infants experience stress and pain and discusses how to recognize signs of and provide strategies to relieve infant stress and pain. Supportive care begins at first contact with an infant and family and ends with a health care team debrief following difficult cases. Support includes recognizing, anticipating, and minimizing infant pain and stress, family-centred care, and team-based learning from experience. Environmental and developmentally supportive care strategies for newborns are described, along with approaches for supporting parents and transitioning from active to palliative care. Debriefing tools and a case scenario are included.
