Project description

We propose a representative survey of the occurrence and characteristics of end-of-life decisions in stillbirths, neonates and infants in Flanders, Belgium. Using reliable methodology with rigorous anonymity we hope to contribute to the development of guidelines and policy for uniform practice regarding these difficult decisions in perinatal care.
