MEDNAX, Inc. (NYSE: MD), a leading national health solutions provider, hosted its 10th annual Innovations in Neonatal Care conference in Austin, Texas, from August 11-13. The event is accredited by the MEDNAX Center for Research, Education, Quality and Safety (CREQS) and provides continuing medical and nursing education credit for participating clinicians.
Innovations in Neonatal Care continues to be a well-respected neonatology conference. Timothy Biela, M.D., MEDNAX-affiliated neonatologist and conference director, developed the event with the goal of enhancing the care and quality provided to premature infants. The conference highlights the latest clinical awareness, treatments and management protocols through evidence-based presentations. During the three-day event, an elite panel of 18 speakers comprised of well-recognized faculty from top institutions across the U.S. and Canada presented 23 sessions. This year, in celebration of its 10th anniversary, a portion of the conference was dedicated to providing an update on some of the most controversial and innovative topics from previous years, including postnatal steroids, counseling and care at borderline viability, quality of care in the neonatal intensive care unit and improving neonatal outcomes by understanding best practices in feeding and nutrition.
