    Presentation | Coordinated multi disciplinary care for neonatal follow up and developmental early intervention.

    This presentation will reflect on the implementation of a new focused neonatal complex care follow-up clinic for infants at higher risk of health and developmental complications from prematurity and birth complications. This clinic maintains links with community partners Kids Plus to assist in joint care, where their BabySMART provides early intervention supports. The joint approach of both programs hopes to reduce challenges for families, and reduce the impact of complications these babies and their families may face.
