Webinar: Multidisciplinary Guidelines for the Care of Late Preterm Infants

Late preterm infants are often treated as "slightly small, almost term babies" and yet babies born at 34 0/7 - 36 6/7 weeks gestation have significantly higher morbidity and mortality rates due to their significant, if not always obvious, immaturity. The "Multidisciplinary Guidelines for the Care of Late Preterm Infants" is an evidence-based approach to providing safe and supportive care for this vulnerable group. Presenter Raylene Phillips, MD, IBCLC, FAAP, reviewed this new resource and described how its use will lead to improved outcomes for late preterm infants by providing guidance, education, and support for families and the healthcare providers who care for them.
