EFCNI at the 2nd World Congress on Maternal Fetal and Neonatal Medicine in London

Too early for Baby Sussex but in time for the 2nd World Congress on Maternal Fetal and Neonatal Medicine. For the second time, EFCNI participated at this biennial international congress, located at the stunning Queen Elizabeth II Congress Centre, right in the heart of London.

EFCNI chaired a well-received session on “How to collaborate and communicate with parents in critical decision making situations”, followed by a lively discussion. Chair of the session and first speaker, EFCNI Chairwoman Silke Mader provided an insightful talk, drawing from experience but also from findings made within the  European Standards of Care for Newborn Health project, where the topic expert group on Ethical decision making and palliative care, has elaborated this difficult topic. We would like to thank our great co-speakers Dr Fauzia Paize (Multidisciplinary antenatal and perinatal palliative care) and Roisin McKeon-Carter (How can we healthcare professionals make the parents journey bearable in the neonatal period?) for their valuable contributions.

Visited by more than 1200 experts in fetal medicine and obstetrics, the congress was also the perfect floor to kick off our pre-eclampsia awareness campaign „Act early! Screen Early!“ We took the chance and won numerous international experts for the important cause of pre-eclampsia awareness and to support our campaign.
