Who is the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) Steering Committee?

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program Steering Committee (NRPSC) coordinates, develops and implements educational programs and materials that promote optimal care and resuscitation of newborns. It is the vision of the NRPSC to have every newborn in need of resuscitation effectively cared for by health care professionals. In support of this vision, the NRPSC develops and updates evidence-based practice guidelines and educational materials. The NRPSC collaborates with relevant stakeholders, including the Committee on Fetus & Newborn (COFN), Section on Perinatal Pediatrics, Section on Hospital Medicine, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and Canadian Pediatric Society (CPS).
