Routine Bilirubin Screening and Management

This practice resource provides a provincial approach that aligns with the Canadian Pediatric Society's (CPS) Position Statement and Guidelines for Detection, Management and Prevention of Hyperbilirubinemia in Term and Late Preterm Newborn Infants. The resource and tools have been developed and/or adapted from the CPS Guidelines to assist care providers from Nova Scotia Health and the IWK in making decisions regarding the care of babies > 35 weeks gestation who are well with no clinical signs of jaundice.
