They will inform planning of the audit in the years to come. WeWWWwelljdpa'fdfffffAudit UpdateKeep up to date with the latest news from the National Neonatal Audit Programme.

New audit questions

NNAP welcome carefully thought out new questions, or revisions to existing questions. During 2014 a proposal for reporting on Chronic Lung Disease has been developed and the Project Board has agreed that this question will be analysed on the 2014 data. Pending discussions it is possible that this will be analysed on a three-year epoch, including data from 2013, 2014 and 2015, with a first report due in summer 2016. Details will be released in the upcoming NNAP newsletter when these are finalised.

Clinical Reference Advisory Group Update

NNAP has formed a newly created Clinical Reference Advisory Group (CRAG) as part of its two-year development plan. The aim of this group of clinicians is to provide a clinicians perspective on NNAP, suggest, develop and implement new questions, and help provide critical review of previous questions. NNAP will work constructively with clinicians through this body, BAPM and other contacts with the clinical community. If you have views on NNAP – share them with us.

‘Developing the future of the National Neonatal Audit Programme’ - NNAP Survey results

The results for the NNAP June 2014 survey, hosted on the Survey Monkey web-survey site, are now available. The survey was completed by the neonatal community in England and Wales, in order to collect information that will help the NNAP Project Board, to better understand the views of neonatal colleagues and help develop the work of the programme in a responsive and inclusive manner; involving the whole of the neonatal community.
