The purpose of the webinar is to support the launch of their revised framework for practice on newborn infants who suffer a sudden and unexpected postnatal collapse (SUPC).

SUPC is the subject of our Neonatal collapse alongside skin-to-skin contact report, published in August 2020. SUPC is a rare but potentially fatal collapse in babies that appear otherwise healthy.
