Authored by the Swiss Society of Neonatology

The board of the Swiss Society of Neonatology regularly reviews the guidelines and determines which guidelines are to be revised and sets an appropriate time frame. In 2020, the board developed a document entitled "Guidelines for Guidelines" (see below) in an attempt to promote a more uniform approach to the development and structure of the guidelines (responsible board member: Dr. Monica Ragazzi).
