  1. Estimating neonatal mortality risk : an analysis of clinicians'judgments.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Clinicians'estimates of mortality risk in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) have implications for patient triage, transfer, initiation and termination of life support, and allocation of medical resources.

    The accuracy of these judgments has not been studied, nor the differences between nurses and attending physicians.

    Objectives

    1) evaluate the accuracy of subjective judgments of NICU unit mortality risk, 2) identify the key components of clinician judgments, 3) compare accuracy between attending physicians and nurses, and 3) examine the utility of combining an objectively computed risk and clinician judgments to improve predictions.
