The increasing use of POCUS by trained neonatal providers provides the opportunity to readily obtain answers to focused diagnostic questions and to perform procedures more safely and with higher success rates.
To leverage the expertise and resources of the CHNC and its member institutions to develop research and quality improvement projects focused on improving neonatal care using POCUS. Encourage collaborative educational opportunities with shared mental model and cloud based resources to create a uniform standard of care for all programs utilizing POCUS. Creation of algorithms and guidelines with other governing bodies such as the National Neonatal POCUS Collaborative (NPC) and POCUS in Pediatrics (PiP).
