COLLABORATIVE NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT NETWORK

Project: Research project

Description

The objective of this application is to provide evidence that the
University of Miami Division of Neonatology has the clinical patient
population, facilities, personnel and an extensive previous research
experience to qualify as one of several centers which will be selected to
participate in carrying out multiple collaborative research protocols.
These centers will be charged with the task of assessing both the safety
and efficacy of new modalities being introduced into the care of neonates.
This center delivers approximately 10,500 infants each year and serves as
the regional tertiary perinatal program for an area encompassing
approximately 40,000 births per year. There are 76 beds assigned to the
special care needs of sick newborns and the census averages 100% of
capacity. The "high-risk" team consists of over 175 full time personnel
whose work is exclusively devoted to neonates and their families. The
neonatology faculty has extensive experience in both inter-departmental and
inter-disciplinary collaborative research endeavors. In addition, the
division has participated in several multi-center clinical trials which
have been both federally and privately funded. There is an established
long-term, developmental follow-up program which is multi-disciplinary and
has been assessing specific short and long-term outcomes for over 10
years. This program has been very active in coordinating health care for
these infants at-risk within the community and accessing as early as
possible special services and interventions when appropriate. The academic
activities of the Neonatal program are recognized both nationally and
internationally. The University of Miami has an ongoing commitment to
relevant clinical research, and with its existing clinical population,
facilities and personnel, can make a meaningful contribution to a
multi-center network to more effectively address the complex diagnostic and
therapeutic problems of newborn infants.
