Webinar: Oklahoma Infant Alliance's Late Preterm Infant Toolkit

This webinar is presented by Mike McCoy on The Oklahoma Infant Alliance Late Preterm Infant Toolkit. Oklahoma has an unacceptable rate of preterm deliveries at 13.8%, with over three-fourths of those born late preterm (10%) by the last data from the March of Dimes. The Oklahoma Infant Alliance sought to meet the needs of this vulnerable population through the development of a toolkit for use in hospitals and agencies who work with the late preterm infant. This webinar describes the identified problem, the process of development of a clinical practice guideline based on current evidence-based resources and research, and final content of the Late Preterm Toolkit for physicians, allied health, and families with a goal of reduction of morbidities associated with late preterm birth.  Other Panelists include Denise Cole, Coordinator- Office of Perinatal Quality Improvement, Bunny Hudson, Program Director- Oklahoma Infant Transition Program, Bonnie Bellah, Executive Director - Oklahoma Infant Alliance, and Raja Nandyal, Chair- Oklahoma Infant Alliance.
