Objectives: Lack of discharge preparedness after NICU hospitalization is associated with risk of readmission and parental stress. Complex infants cared for at regional children's hospital NICUs would benefit from a systematic approach to transition home. Our objective was to identify potential best practices for NICU discharge and examine priorities for incorporating these best practices in regional children's hospital NICUs.
