The Neonatal Intensive-Care Unit: Developing an Acceptable Public Policy.
Raye, John R.; Healey, Joseph M.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v4 n1 p71-82 Spr 1984
The decision-making process in treatment questions for seriously ill and handicapped neonates must focus on the best interests of the individual infant and maintain the responsibility for pursuing that interest within the parent-physician relationship. This goal is best served by mandating the development of policies for decision making and review. (Author/CL)
