Evidence to Practice: Preventing Intraventricular Hemorrhage

12:00-1:00 p.m. (ET) Wednesday, September 13, 2023

In this session, our focus will be on exploring strategies aimed at preventing intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in preterm newborns who are at risk. We will delve into antenatal, delivery room, and postnatal practices that have been employed for this purpose. Our investigation will encompass insights drawn from clinical trials, as well as the valuable perspectives of caregivers who have actively participated in quality improvement initiatives centered around IVH prevention. We will engage in a comprehensive analysis of a systematic review that highlights various quality improvement endeavors targeted specifically at preventing IVH.

Faculty: Elizabeth Rogers, MD; Erika Edwards, PhD, MPH; Roger Soll, MD; Danielle Ehret, MD, MPH
