Special Series: Neonatal Palliative, End of Life, and Hospice Care Across Multiple Settings
Target Publication Dates: Winter/Spring 2020, Advances in Neonatal Care, 2020(1) and 2020(2)
Submission Dates: Immediately through August 1st, 2019
Provision of neonatal palliative, end-of-life, and hospice care is an important practice area for health care providers. Yet despite the support from numerous organizations including NANN, evidence-based palliative, end-of-life, and hospice interventions and programs are not standard practice in all neonatal settings. This special issue is calling for manuscripts about exemplary programs, care delivery challenges, and new evidence-based strategies focused on improving symptom management and quality of life for these infants and their families from prior to birth until hospital discharge or death. All manuscript types are encouraged.

- A working manuscript title
- Short synopsis of your planned manuscript (3-4 sentences outlining content)
- Planned submission date (before 3/01/2019)
Submission of this information soon will help us with planning the series.
