jENS Congress – Maastricht – September 2019

Dr. Minesh Khashu attended the jENS Congress in Maastricht from 17th to 21st September 2019.

He presented on NEC, highlighting the lack of a global definition, as a major barrier, which is preventing improvements in outcomes of NEC.

He also implored the neonatal community to embrace better use of data, analytics and artificial intelligence to improve outcomes for newborns and their families.
