European Standards of Care for Newborn Health Project


This collaborative project under the auspices of EFCNI brings together health experts, professional societies, civil society organisations, representatives of national parent organisations (including Mandy Daly from the INHA), third party advisors and industry partners to develop harmonised reference standards for the care of preterm and newborn infants in Europe. The standards will cover a wide range of topics from care at birth, neonatal intensive care as well as follow up and continuing care to ethical questions, education of neonatal health professionals, data collection and documentation. To this end, interdisciplinary Topic Expert Groups will be dedicated to one topic of newborn health. The standards will run through an extensive consultation process before being publically available online end of 2018. Providing a set of collectively developed standards for newborn health will be an important step towards improving the quality of preterm and newborn care in Europe.
