Lessons from Neonatal Research: A Presentation by Dr Sarah Seaton
Our presenter for the January Vaughan Open Research Forum session is Dr Sarah Seaton, Perinatal and paediatric researcher.
After birth around 1 in 8 babies require specialist care in neonatal units. For babies born too soon, the time they require in hospital can be very lengthy and they face many challenges. Historically, doctors would tell families that if their baby survived they would go home around their due date. But this statement had no research behind it.
In this talk, Dr Sarah Seaton will explore whether evidence supports the use of this phrase, and talk about the long term impact of prematurity.
