Center Assistant Professor Dr. Devan Stahl recently traveled to Rhode Island to present at the National Association of Neonatal Nurses’ (NANN) Advanced Practice Summit, held on October 11. Dr. Stahl delivered the event’s keynote address, speaking on “Caring for Infants with Trisomy 18: Practical and Ethical Challenges.”

Dr. Stahl’s presentation discussed how to make difficult choices about what treatments should be offered to parents, what choices should be offered by the health care team, and how best to support parents in the decision making process. The presentation was well attended and generated much discussion as the group worked through the various ethical challenges presented.
