Get involved in the ‘Neonatal Research Priority Setting Partnership’

Do YOU get frustrated at the differences in neonatal practice between rotations?

Do YOU wish that there was better quality evidence to allow standardisation of care?!

Get involved in the ‘Neonatal Research Priority Setting Partnership” to help set and prioritise future practice-changing neonatal research in the UK!

We are pleased to let you know that BAPM, the Neonatal Society, the Neonatal Nurses Association and RCPCH are working together to oversee a process to identify and prioritise research questions that can be tested in randomised trials in UK neonatal care.

The first stage of the process is to gather questions from the neonatal community and question submission is open now until 28th February.

All those invested in neonatal care are encouraged to take part to make sure we can identify the questions most important to all of us. This includes (but is not limited to) doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, parents, former patients and researchers. If you have a question that you think would benefit from further research to improve care or reduce unwanted variations in practice we would love to hear from you.

There is more information on the BAPM website about the project including a full protocol and supporting resources on how to submit a question.


Webinar: Prioritising Neonatal Research Questions

7 February 2022, 10:00 – 10:40, Free to attend

Join us for a short webinar to find out more about the project and why this is so important for neonatal care. You can also discover how you can contribute by submitting your own research question.

Find out more about priority setting work and how to structure a PICO research question by attending this webinar. Could also be used to evidence Domain 11 of the RCPCH Progress Curriculum!
