The Swiss society of Neonatology‘s goals are to foster neonatology in Switzerland, improve the quality of neonatal care and represent the interests of newborn infants in the public. Looking back at the 2018 meeting in Berne recorded and published by Klewel available publicly for free to all.
The 2018 Annual Conference of the Swiss Society of Neonatology addressed Hot Topics in Neonatology, including pros and cons of new, less invasive respiratory support strategies such as high ow nasal canula and less invasive surfactant administration and the use of stem cell therapy in perinatology. Young pediatricians and neonatologists as well as nurses, midwives and obstetricians actively participated and presented their research. All the presentations, slides, videos are accessible to all.
A series of 2018 Awards of the Swiss Society of Neonatology were distributed.
Every two years, the Fred Bamatter Award is presented at the Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society of Pediatrics (CHF 20’000.-). The aim is to reward clinical and basic research in Perinatology. The perinatal period should be taken in the widest sense of the word, including the prenatal (embryo and fetus), birth, postnatal and follow-up periods. Professor Fred Bamatter (1899-1988) was an outstanding clinician, teacher and researcher. During his lectures, he always tried to link clinical practice to scientific knowledge. Thus, the priority will be given to researchers who attempt to make the same link.
