Dr. Michael Narvey, one of the principal authors, of the recently updated Canadian Pediatric Society Guideline ‘The Screening and Management of Newborns at Risk for Low Blood Glucose’ will guide you through an in depth look at neonatal hypoglycemia.

This webinar will also include a fascinating malpractice case study by Joe Miller, QC and a discussion of the nursing and medical issues with Dr. Narvey and Chris Rokosh. And there will be lots of opportunity to ask questions.
