Dr. Erin Orth is a Neonatal-Perinatal Fellow who is expected to complete her fellowship training in 2020. She is excited to be the first fellow to participate in the Neonatal-Perinatal Quality Improvement Track through a partnership with IHQI. Erin completed her Pediatric residency training at UNC followed by a year as a Pediatric Chief Resident from 2016-2017. She has several Quality Improvement interests related to her patients in the Newborn Critical Care Center pertaining to family-centered care, parental self-efficacy, and the parent-infant relationship during the highly stressful time of a baby’s admission to the NICU. She is interested in building parental skills and confidence for improved discharge preparedness and to facilitate a smooth transition from the NICU to home with the aim of improving outcomes for NICU patients. She also has an interest in medical education, including improving the educational experience of trainees rotating through the NICU setting.
