Shared Decision Making and Neonatal Care

Division of Newborn Medicine

One project explored parents’ experiences with decision-making in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and another explored information available about fetal care decisions for those with severe congenital malformations.

These projects were led by Dr. Frank Soltys, a previous newborn medicine fellow, mentored by Dr. Mary Politi and faculty in the Division of Newborn Medicine
