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.

  • Are all mothers who deliver babies between 24 and 34 weeks gestation inclusive given any dose of antenatal steroids?
  • Are mothers who deliver babies below 30 weeks gestation given magnesium sulphate in the 24 hours prior to delivery?
  • Do all babies of less than 32 weeks gestation have their temperature taken within an hour after birth, and, what proportion of these admission temperatures recorded within one hour are within the recommended range of 36.5˚C to 37.5˚C?
  • Is there a documented consultation with parents by a senior member of the neonatal team within 24 hours of admission?
  • Do all babies born weighing less than 1501g, or at gestational age of less than 32 weeks, undergo the first retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screening in accordance with the current guideline recommendations?
  • How many babies born at less than 30 weeks gestation received medical follow up at two years gestationally corrected age (18-30 gestationally corrected age range of acceptable ages)?

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:
