Working Together for Best Outcomes

Engage Grow Thrive has partnered with Dandle•LION Medical to create a summary of evidence in the clinical care of extremely low birthweight (ELBW) Babies. This white paper, titled “Working Together for Best Outcomes: Interdisciplinary Evidence-Based Practice Strategies in ELBW Care,” seeks to delineate key concepts of small baby care, not to provide a comprehensive review. We intend to highlight why the small baby is at risk, key Evidence-Based Practice (EBP), and the imperative to implement EBP using the interdisciplinary neonatal team’s shared mental model of care.

The summary of this White Paper can be found by visiting the Education tab above, or clicking here. To download the complete white paper, including a full list of references, click the button below:
