About The Study: In this study of 15,000 infants born extremely preterm, redirection of care discussions (withdrawal, withholding, or limiting escalation of treatment) occurred less often for Black and Hispanic infants than for white and non-Hispanic infants. It is important to explore the possible reasons underlying these differences. 

Authors: Jane E. Brumbaugh, M.D., of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is the corresponding author.
