The event will bring together key people in the field of neonatal care - an excellent opportunity for networking and finding out more about the key findings and recommendations from the annual report.
There is no fee for attendance. Invitations with event times and programme activities will be sent in due course.
The project is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership and managed by the RCPCH. For enquiries, contact the NNAP project team at email@example.com
The fifth annual NNAP and Neonatal Data Analysis Unit (NDAU) collaborators’ meeting took place on Monday 16 March 2015 at the Holiday Inn, Birmingham. Eighty delegates attended the meeting including patients and a wide range of multidisciplinary team members working in support of neonatal care.
The key aims of the meeting were:
- Gaining an understanding of the methods and processes of NNAP
- Opportunities to provide involvement in influencing the development of NNAP questions and analyses
- Learning about specific examples of quality improvement from around the UK

Delegates participated enthusiastically in the workshop session
Their valuable feedback will be fully reviewed by the NNAP project board with a view to making improvements to the programme.
Delegate feedback from the day
‘I found other people's "stories" of how they used their data to improve quality very useful and more sessions like this would be great’.
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 clinician's perspective on NNAP, to suggest, develop and implement new questions, and to help provide critical review of previous questions. NNAP will work constructively with clinicians through this body, British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) and other contacts with the clinical community.

This survey in June 2014 aimed to help the NNAP Project Board better understand the views of neonatal colleagues in England and Wales, and to develop the work of the programme in a responsive and inclusive manner.
