Assessment and Care of the Late Preterm Infant: Evidence-based Clinical Practice Guideline (2010)

This new guideline provides current clinical practice recommendations for care of late preterm infants. The goal is to ensure that nurses understand the risks of late preterm birth and the unique needs of the late preterm neonate so they can provide timely evidence-based assessments and interventions. The guideline uses evidence-based approaches to help the nurse identify and assess the late preterm neonate at risk for complications from birth through hospital discharge; validate the infant's gestational age; assess and intervene regarding the infant's respiratory status, thermoregulation, hypoglycemia, sepsis, hyperbilirubinema and feeding challenges; and incorporate guidelines into nursing interventions, discharge, planning and parent education. A Quick Care Guide highlights key assessments, interventions and parent teaching strategies. The guideline also includes a patient education handout. 2.3 contact hours available through 12/31/13. CNE credit may be extended past this date following content review and/or update. Visit for up-to-date information on CNE activities. Published by AWHONN
