Neonatal Quality at Hot Topics will offer presentations and workshops designed to help neonatal clinicians improve the care they provide at the bedside. It will open with a keynote address by a national leader that reviews the impact of quality improvement (QI) on neonatal care. Following this, there will be two themed panel discussions on necrotizing enterocolitis and bronchopulmonary dysplasia that focus on how quality improvement methods can reduce the burden of these important morbidities. The afternoon breakout sessions will offer hands-on training in essential skills that neonatologists need to develop in order to carry out a successful QI project from inception through completion and publication.
