Look to Scandinavia

Lars Ursin, PhD,a Janicke Syltern, MD,b John D. Lantos, MDc

Should the rest of the world look to Scandinavian neonatal intensive care? In this special supplement, Scandinavian and international clinicians and bioethicists present, compare, and discuss the legislation, national guidelines, consensus documents, and practices in the field of neonatal care in Scandinavia. The central questions that bind these contributions together are whether there is a unified Scandinavian medicoethical approach or if, why, and how health care systems that seem to represent the same still differ in ethically significant ways. This supplement thus offers the reader an insight into the Scandinavian approach(es) and the lessons that can be learned.
