Collaborative improvements in neonatal care
Conference poster, 2012

This project was conducted at the children- and women division, Skaraborg Hospital, Sweden. The hospital has about 2500 births a year and 10 % of the newborns need neonatal care. The project was initiated at the neonatal ward but then expanded to comprise the maternity ward and the delivery unit as well. During the project, healthcare staff –nurses, midwifes and nursing assistants – collaborated with patients and their relatives. The patients that were involved were mothers with newborns as well as their partners.
