Infant Mortality and Pregnancy Loss (Knowledge Path and Resources for Families)

From GMRLIST is an email list for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine-Greater Midwest Region (NN/LM-GMR) members, this item written by Samanthi Hewakapuge, MA, MLS, Consumer Health Coordinator


The Maternal and Child Health Library at Georgetown University released a new edition of the knowledge path, Infant Mortality and Pregnancy Loss.  The knowledge path directs readers to resources that analyze data, report on research aimed at identifying causes and promising intervention strategies, and describe risk-reduction efforts as well as bereavement-support programs. Separate sections present resources about factors that contribute to infant mortality and pregnancy loss: birth defects, injuries, low birthweight and prematurity, preconception and pregnancy, and safe sleep environments.

The knowledge path was created for health professionals, policymakers, researchers, and families. View the path online at  http://www.mchlibrary.info/KnowledgePaths/kp_infmort.html. A resource brief for families accompanies the knowledge path and is available at http://www.mchlibrary.info/families/frb_infmort.html.
