NNAP - dataset and audit measures

The NNAP Project Board conducts a regular review of the NNAP dataset and audit measures in close consultation with colleagues from the NDAU and the wider neonatal community, taking note of the publication or amendment of any relevant professional guidance and/or standards. As part of the review of the dataset and audit measures, the Project Board will liaise with colleagues at Clevermed and the NDAU and agree whether any related amendments are required within the fields and functionality of the Badgernet system. The NNAP Project Team will notify participating neonatal networks and units of any changes to the audit dataset prior to those changes being implemented.

NNAP 2016 & 2017 audit measures

2016 dataset audit outlier measures

  • What proportion of babies with a gestation at birth of <32 weeks had both their temperature recorded within an hour of birth and a temperature value recorded as being between 36.50C to 37.50C
  • Are all babies with a gestational age at birth <32+0 weeks or <1501g at birth undergoing first Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) screening in accordance with the current national guideline recommendations
  • Is there a documented consultation with parents by a senior member of the neonatal team within 24 hours of admission?
  • (NEW) Are all mothers who deliver babies between 24+0 and 34+6 weeks gestation given any dose of antenatal steroids?

Badgernet Guidelines

We have produced NNAP Data Entry Guidelines which outlines the data items on the:

  • BadgerNet (PDF, 3.98MB, 40 Pages)
  • Badger3, Neonatal.net (PDF 3.37MB, 38 Pages) patient record systems which will be used in NNAP analyses from 1 January 2013.

Quality Improvement

The Quality Improvement (PDF, 187KB, 7 pages) document is available which outlines performance indicators, the detection and management of outlier units and how the audit will monitor change.

Two-year follow up

NNAP is auditing the health status of babies <30+0 weeks gestation at birth. The electronic form available on the Neonatal.net is the preferred method, but if a paper version is required, it can be downloaded here:
