Healthcare in general is facing fundamental changes requiring new conceptual frameworks, updated guidelines, and adherence to changing regulations. Neonatal clinicians in particular are re-evaluating current practices, examining outcomes data and analyzing research results to determine if evidence-based best practices are in place in their units and positively impacting care. There is a lot to consider as care of the critically ill newborn continues to evolve and move forward in the 21st century!

Now celebrating its 28th year, The Fetus & Newborn: State-of-the-Art Care conference offers you the opportunity to step out of the fast-paced NICU environment for a look at the latest innovations and therapies in neonatal care. We will address wide-ranging challenges, from prevention of NEC and chronic lung disease to incorporation of new technology and fetal interventions. Bring your questions and your puzzling cases – the stellar faculty and your colleagues will provide answers, guidance and new perspectives. Perinatal/neonatal medicine is truly a combination of art and science as we work towards best possible outcomes for these fragile patients and their families – the ultimate goal of what we do.
Highlights of the 2012 conference include:
 The dynamic and always-popular “Neonatal Pharmacology” Preconference, addressing controversies in medication choices and hot topics in pharmacotherapy, in addition to current treatment strategies for the most common diseases and complications.
 Evidence-based protocols and updates for the management of high-risk infants.
 Opportunities to interact and problem-solve with nationally known experts through in-depth case discussions and faculty panels.
 New technologies and tools for assessing fetal and neonatal well-being.
 Opportunities to build professional relationships with colleagues from across the country that practice in a variety of perinatal/neonatal settings.
 Exploration of the ways in which nutrition, ventilation and pharmacology choices impact long-term outcomes for these medically fragile patients.
 Your choice of Concurrent Sessions, allowing you to build a personal curriculum to meet your professional needs.
 The incomparable setting of San Francisco, a city with endless choices for exploration, dining, adventure and shopping!
Mark your calendar, invite a colleague to join you, and plan on an energizing learning experience. See you in San Francisco!
