New-borns and their chance for a healthy future
The situation of new-borns in Poland, especially those born preterm, requires changes. What needs to be modified in order to ensure that Polish neonatology follows medical development was the main focus of a meeting held on 28 May. Polish experts participating in the event are currently working on a system of guidelines in 26 areas concerning hospital treatment and follow-up care.
Aligning the standards of neonatal care in all countries, but above all striving to ensure that decision makers, who have a real impact on the shape of healthcare system, change their way of thinking and agree that health is an investment that needs constant expenditure – those are the conclusions reached by participants of the International Summit for impacting the standards of care for newborns, “Let’s take the first steps together” held between 13 and 14 November 2014 in Warsaw.
