Hypoglycemia is one of the most frequently encountered problems in the first 48 hours of life and low glucose concentrations are perhaps the most common biochemical abnormality seen by providers caring for newborns. Unfortunately, the optimal strategy for managing this problem remains elusive. Now is the time to join the state in standardizing care for hypoglycemia of the newborn.
To date, there are over 60 teams who are registered for the kickoff meeting on January 24, 2019 in Raleigh. Are you one of them? If not, now is the time to engage.
A day of collaboration with teams across North Carolina and a talk by a national expert in the field, is not something to miss. Dr. David Adamkin, author of the statement on Neonatal Hypoglycemia for the American Academy of Pediatrics, will discuss the brewing topic of “Neonatal Hypoglycemia, Making Sense of Different Opinions” to kickoff PQCNC’s Newborn Hypoglycemia Prevention and Care initiative.
