Our Responsibility to Follow Through for NICU Infants and Families
Pediatrics, December 2020
In our paper published in Pediatrics, we argue that it is our responsibility to follow through to address the social determinants of health with the same energy and expertise that we devote to the technical aspects of care.
Included in the paper are 68 potentially better practices that teams and individuals can commit to today to test and implement in the unit.
