Premature Babies Resource Centre

​​​​

This guide was prepared to help community health representatives (CHRs) inNunavut access information about premature babies that is available at The Hospital for Sick Children’s (SickKids) website, www.aboutkidshealth.ca. The evidence-based health information was created in collaboration with expert health professionals at SickKids.

Because the Premature Babies resource centre on www.aboutkidshealth.ca is hundreds of pages long, and material on a topic is sometimes spread across several pages, it can be challenging to find information without a fast Internet connection. This summary guide will help.

The guide is available in English, French, and Inuktitut.
