Steering Committee

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program Steering Committee (NRPSC) is comprised of neonatologists and a multidisciplinary group of liaisons and consultants who coordinate, develop and implement educational materials to promote optimal care and resuscitation of newborns. The NRPSC collaborates with relevant stakeholders to promote effective collaboration and synchronous change.

To promote effective collaboration and synchronous change, the NRPSC collaborates with relevant stakeholders, including the AAP Committee on Fetus & Newborn (COFN), AAP Section on Perinatal Pediatrics, AAP Section on Hospital Medicine, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the Association for Women's Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN), the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC), and the Canadian Pediatric Society (CPS).
