Call for poster submissions

We invite you to submit a poster for display at the meeting to share your local improvement and research projects with colleagues. Some of the poster submissions will be invited to deliver a quick-fire presentation about their work.

Your poster should be A1 size and relate to the learning objectives for the day. We are particularly interested in submissions that focus on:

  • Using NNAP results to trigger and inform quality improvement; including how to share data to the multidisciplinary team and families
  • Family involvement in delivering neonatal care; including parent participation in ward rounds
  • Establishing a transitional care unit and minimising separation of mother and baby

Please submit your draft poster by Monday 11 February 2019 to nnap@rcpch.ac.uk. We will notify those who have been selected to present their poster shortly after this date. To be selected, you must already be registered to attend the event.
