BAPM Frameworks for Practice: supporting neonatal staff to optimise perinatal care
Kate Dinwiddy, Helen Mactier
Last year was an important one for BAPM Frameworks for Practice. An editorial discussing the framework on the management of extreme preterm birth made the front cover of the Lancet and existing guidance on consent with a framework on shared decision-making was updated. BAPM also published a document on determining cot capacity, designed for use alongside the existing framework on service standards for hospitals providing neonatal care. At the time of writing, a framework on preventing and managing dropped babies in hospitals is out for consultation and additional frameworks on therapeutic hypothermia, family integrated care, and management of the difficult airway as well as career pathways for advanced neonatal nurse practitioners are due to be published in 2020.
