The Confidential Enquiry into Stillbirths and Deaths in Infancy (CESDI) devised Project 27/78 to identify the patterns of perinatal practice and service that may have affected the risk of a neonatal death between 27 and 28 weeks gestation. The report deals with perinatal care but this article concentrates on the key messages for neonatologists. Project 27/28 complies with two of the three attributes for a clinical guideline. The rigour of the report shows appropriate composition of the guideline development group and scoping of the guideline.
