BAPM Framework for Practice launched

16 February 2022

BAPM has  launched the Framework for Practice 'Pre-hospital management of the baby born at extreme preterm gestation'.

This consensus document offers a pragmatic approach to the management of unexpected extreme preterm birth in an out of hospital setting. 

A draft document was written by a Working Group co-ordinated by BAPM and comprising experienced paramedic, midwifery and neonatal practitioners with expertise in pre-hospital care, emergency maternity care and resuscitation of the newborn; this draft was extensively revised following wide consultation. 

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the consultation of this document.
