Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): Policy/Guideline (National), NATIONAL, POPULATION-BASED SYSTEMS

Intervention Results:

  • Among all VLBW births, the percentage of level III births statistically significantly changed over the study period (p<0.0001). However, the percentage was increasing before intervention and through one year post-intervention, then subsequently decreased through the end of the follow-up period.
  • The author suggests that the intervention did not have a significant effect on the percentage of VLBW births in level III hospitals.
