On 19th of November the digital UENPS Congress, EFCNI chairwoman Silke Mader hosted the plenary session FAMILY CENTRED CARE: THE WORLD EXPERIENCE, where she was also presenting on the topic of “Family-centred care: current application and future directions”. At this roundtable, she pointed out the effects of COVID-19 on deliveries worldwide and drew attention to the consequences a separation policy has on parents and preterm born babies.
We would like to thank all speakers for sharing their knowledge and personal experience. This enabled very fruitful, insightful discussion during the session.
Moreover, we would like to give our thanks to Professor Corrado Moretti for the invitation and the great opportunity to discuss the very important matter of family centred care in times of the pandemic in such a significant context.
