Lay summary
Transitional Care has been highlighted by the MOH and the Newborn Clinical Network as a priority for the provision of neonatal care particularly focusing on the late preterm and term infants transitioning in the perinatal period. This service is yet to be developed within the SDHB and this research activity provides the opportunity to develop research and health service delivery skills within the team. The aim is to develop Transitional Care services alongside the community to meet their needs in an equitable fashion so that all infants and whānau can thrive. The First 1000 days has been identified as a priority for lifelong health and wellbeing, and Transitional Care provides the opportunity to strengthen whānau and optimise outcomes. I will focus on infants who are at risk of developing Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and the Eat, Sleep and Console model of care which supports whānau with these infants in Transitional Care.
