To identify the controversies in defining fetal growth restriction and to propose a SMFM position on a common definition for research purposes. 

  1. Identify controversies and data gaps in defining fetal growth restriction and correlation with outcomes, particularly clinically meaningful and long-term outcomes. 
  2. Propose a SMFM position to bring researchers to use the same terminology so research outcomes can be compared across studies. 
  3. Stimulate more collaborative research.
There is no CME credit available for this course.
