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’.
The extended online version, which covers the period from 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2013, is now available to download. The published version of the report will be circulated in due course.
NNAP welcome carefully thought out new questions, or revisions to existing questions.
In 2014 a proposal for reporting on Chronic Lung Disease was 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.
When these are finalised, details will be released in the upcoming NNAP newsletter.
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.
