Standards reaching final phase: 5th Chair Committee Meeting

/ News

he launch of the European Standards of Care for Newborn Health is continuously getting closer and we have taken another important step towards finalising the standards successfully.

From 25 to 27 February 2018, more than 30 experts from 16 countries gathered at the 5th and final Chair Committee Meeting of the European Standards of Care for Newborn Health project in Freising, Germany. In intense working session, different Chair Committee Groups discussed and firmed up the remaining 60 of the in total 100 standards. The meeting also offered the opportunity to organise the launch of the standards which is scheduled for November and to prepare the implementation process. Moreover, every Topic Expert Group, responsible for one of the eleven neonatal and perinatal topics, got the chance to present their work of the past four years.

We would like to thank everyone involved in the project for their commitment!
