Toolkit for the European Standards of Care for Newborn Health now available online

The toolkit ‘Shaping the future – Combining forces to improve newborn health’ was launched on the occasion of this year´s Congress of joint European Neonatal Societies (jENS) 2019 in Maastricht. The toolkit aims to facilitate and support the implementation of the European Standards of Care for Newborn Health on a national, regional, and local level. It can be used by various stakeholders like parent organisations, healthcare professionals, healthcare societies, payers, non-governmental organisations, policymakers, politicians, the media, and other interested parties. This practical handbook provides knowledge and background information about the standards, ideas, tools, and step-by-step advice. Many practical examples serve as an inspiration in order to raise awareness and engage with national stakeholders.

 

The toolkit is a digital, interactive resource and is available here.

 

We hope this practical toolkit will motivate and support key stakeholders to foster the implementation of the European Standards of Care for Newborn Health throughout Europe and beyond.
