Editorial: Reducing complications of perinatal care

Mary Ann Fletcher, Trevor Macpherson

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


There can be no easy formula for preventing complications in neonatal care. Everyone involved either directly or indirectly in the care of neonates has to be aware and concerned about known or potential complications. Likewise, we each need to commit to accumulating experience and disseminating information through supervision and communication, while assuming our share of responsibility in following our patients. Effort needs to be individual and collaborative with a primary goal such as that of the SGCPC: the prevention of complications of perinatal care. Recognition, communication, supervision, documentation, follow-up, and research are suggested areas for attention where we all can impact on the outcome of our patients.
