As science progresses, new issues in bioethics grab the headlines, but in neonatal medicine communication and decision making for sick and premature infants is as important today as it was thirty years ago. Decisions have to be made and made well, despite suboptimal time, data, or knowledge. To this end, the authors propose good communication and a cooperative model as key to interpreting the best interest standard in a way that respects parental rights and responsibility and allows best interest to be decided from an amalgam of medical facts and human values.
