Abstract

ABSTRACT

A regionalization program, initiated in 1973 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, has included community hospital site visits, formal nursing courses, and neonatal transport. The neonatal transport program was designed not only to give initial medical care to the sick newborn, but also to develop the educational aspects of the regionalization program. Analysis of data from the first two years (614 transports) revealed significant educational interactions occurring during transport. Improved perinatal care the second year was reflected in decreased regional neonatal mortality and improved neonatal management.
