The off-label use of medications is pretty much the standard for neonatology. What is really considered to be off-label use? Why should we, perhaps, be thinking about these drug choices more than we do? Join Dr. Thigpen for a discussion that turns on the lights about off-label drugs.
Define and differentiate between "off label" and "investigational" and how and when these terms should be used in neonatology.
Describe the history of off label use of medications in neonatology and how this persistent issue continues to be addressed.
Discuss areas in neonatal care where increased research on drug therapy is especially indicated.
