Written by neonatal nurses and midwives for nurses and midwives, the 2nd edition highlights the collaborative nature of neonatal care and the provision of individualised, developmentally and culturally appropriate, family-centred care.

Spanning all neonatal care levels and considerations, across special care baby units (SCBU) and neonatal intensive care units (NICU), the text comprehensively addresses newborn screening, resuscitation, interdisciplinary teamwork, retrievals and transport; stabilisation of the high-risk newborn; legal and ethical issues; care of the normal newborn and end-of-life care in the neonatal unit.

With an increased focus on the role of the midwife within the neonatal environment, the text is ideally suited to undergraduate nursing and midwifery students and as an introductory text for postgraduate neonatal intensive care specialisation.
