Learning Objectives:

  3. Understand the expanded use of ACS; perceived benefits to the later preterm infants.
  4. Appreciate the data on long term neurodevelopmental harm associated with antenatal corticosteroids (in animals and in humans).
  5. Present options for future study of antenatal corticosteroids.
