2017 The Fetus and Newborn

Nov 8, 2017 ‐ Nov 11, 2017


Care of the critically ill newborn is an ever-changing landscape of assessment and diagnostic knowledge and tools, pharmacotherapeutic treatment options, surgical and non-surgical approaches to congenital and acquired conditions and evaluation of long-term outcomes. In its 34th year, The Fetus & Newborn: Improving Outcomes in Perinatal and Neonatal Care conference focuses on gaining insight and understanding of new concepts in neonatal care, and to challenge current practices and procedures, all with the goal of providing optimal care for our fragile patients. Recorded in Las Vegas, physicians, advanced practice nurses, staff nurses, pharmacists and physician assistants who create and implement the collaborative care approach needed by these patients and their families will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and skill through this conference.
