BAPM is seeking members to join a working group to develop a Framework for Practice on the Management of Neonatal Pain and Agitation. 

There is currently no standard practice for prevention, assessment and management of pain and agitation across neonatal intensive care units and the management continues to challenge the clinicians. In this setting, clinicians must establish safe and compassionate standardized practices that consider available efficacy data, long-term outcomes, and research gaps.  

This framework will provide a practical clinical approach to pain assessment and avoidance, procedural analgesia, postoperative analgesia, sedation during mechanical ventilation and therapeutic hypothermia, and the issues of tolerance and weaning. 

Vacancies* on the group are: 

2 NICU Consultants
1 LNU/SCU Consultant
1 Trainee
1 Psychologist

No previous experience of BAPM working groups is required and applications from BAPM members will be given priority. 

The first meeting will be held on 24 June, with the second meeting scheduled for 1 July. It is envisaged that this work will take approximately eight months and involve six virtual meetings. Please see attached terms of reference for more details. 

To apply please complete the application form by 27 May 2024.
