NeoSkin Sig

The NeoSkin SIG provides a forum for discussion of practices that promote neonatal skin health and prevention and management of skin injury for neonates. Additionally, the SIG provides opportunity for neonatal nurses to explore and share quality improvement or research initiatives related to neonatal skin care and health. The skin is the largest organ of the human body and protecting skin is an essential element in providing care to well, preterm and sick newborns.
