Healthcare professionals’ views to inform revision of the NEWTT tool
Early identification of clinical deterioration provides an opportunity for timely intervention that may prevent irreversible harm and death in newborn infants. Early warning scores, such as the British Association of Perinatal Medicine Newborn Early Warning Trigger and Track (BAPM NEWTT), are used for this purpose. We set out to gather opinions of UK healthcare professionals to inform a review of the BAPM NEWTT guidance and identify features that may require modification.
