Published: 23/01/2015
Publication code: 004641
ISBN: 9781910672105
Publication informed by numerous influential drivers, from a variety of sources, and will be updated regularly. Neonatal care has come a long way in a short time. Outcomes that could only have been dreamed of 10 to 15 years ago are, in many cases, now possible for infants of extremely low birth weight. The ethos of neonatal care emphasises close collaboration with families in all neonatal health care settings.
