Clinical guidelines and care protocols

One of the main objectives of our research is the translation of results to the medical community and that involves improving clinical practice in maternal-fetal medicine. Hence an important contribution of the team is the development of clinical guidelines and care protocols. This activity allows us to integrate some of the research results into the clinical practice of maternal-fetal medicine and neonatology units, optimizing patient care and promoting the application of certain preventive and treatment measures in health services.
