A multidisciplinary care approach based on the Model for Improvement was associated with fewer complications and maintained premature infants' temperatures in the proper range, according to a study in the journal Pediatrics. The study tracked data on 361 neonates before and after the care model was phased in, researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City reported. From baseline to full implementation, the incidence of temperatures below 36 degrees Celsius went from 55% to 6%.
