The European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI) is the first pan-European organisation to represent the interests of preterm and newborn infants and their families. It gathers together parents and health professionals from different disciplines with the common goal of improving long-term health of preterm and newborn children by ensuring the best possible prevention, treatment, care and support (http://www.efcni.org/).
PEARL is now a Collaboration Partner with EFCNI with the goal of improving pain management for preterm and newborn children. Mats Eriksson is also designated as member of the Scientific Advisory Board of EFCNI.
