The field of neonatology is expanding in many aspects. Not only is care of the neonatal patient evolving, but there now is also the need for follow-up long after the neonatal period. The neonatologist has ever increasing roles in preparing patients for discharge, communicating with all relevant follow-up care givers, updating them with advances in the field of neonatology as it relates to follow-up care, and coordinating whatever medical and developmental follow-up is necessary to guarantee that all the effort spent during an ICN stay will not be wasted by unaddressed, potentially preventable problems arising after discharge.
