  • Nutrition Practice Care Guidelines for Preterm Infants in the Community, 2013 revision The guidelines are designed to assist WIC and community-based health professionals in caring for the high-risk preterm infant to ensure optimal post-discharge growth and development.  This is the 3rd and most extensive revision since the first publication of the guidelines in 2001.  This revision was a two year process with collaboration with WIC RDs, Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) RDs and Oregon Pediatric Nutrition Practice Group (OPNPG).
