Summary : With the advent of new screening methods, we can diagnose many disorders/ malformations in early part of neonatal period. This will enable us to start the treatment early. Though they look simple, sometimes it will be very difficult to manage and counsel about the long term aspects of the child. In this workshop, we wanted to cover common screening methods available and how to treat these disorders/malformations. We involved experts with vast experience in the field with whom you can get benefited.
