Foteini Andritsou is a Register Sick Children’s Nurse (RSCN) from the Nursing and Midwifery Council and a specialised Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Nurse from Oxford Brookes University. She completed her Bachelor and Master studies in Children’s Nursing at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, after which she worked as Children’s Research Nurse in Paediatric Community Nursing at the University of Athens. In this role, she focussed upon the topic of out-of-hospital administration of non-prescription medication and associated factors among preschool children. During her studies and her work, she discovered the beautiful and powerful world of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and its special babies and their families. After more than 8 years of clinical paediatric and neonatal experience in Greece and the UK, Foteini joined the Paediatric Neuroimaging Group as Senior Neonatal Research Nurse.  

Foteini is interested in infant neurodevelopmental care, and especially how exposure to painful stimuli can change the physiological stability, sleep state and neurodevelopmental outcomes in premature babies during their long journey in NICU. She has completed the Family and Infant Neurodevelopmental Education (FINE) programme level 1 & 2 from NIDCAP (Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Programme) and she was a member of the Family NEST Group in Oxford’s Newborn Care Unit, trying to improve current policies and educate staff in the family integrated care approach for babies’ best neurodevelopmental outcome. She is also currently attending the Breastfeeding London Course to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)supporting the dyad mother-baby by specialising in the clinical management of breastfeeding.
