The Newborn Early Warning Trigger and Track (NEWTT2) framework and chart are for use in postnatal care settings including the delivery suite, postnatal ward and transitional care unit. They provide an escalation tool and a standard response and review tool for the multidisciplinary team to use to ensure that any signs of deterioration are noticed early and escalated efficiently.
This webinar will explain the updates from the original NEWTT chart and provide guidance on using the new chart using real life examples. We will share the experience of our testers and talk about the next steps including digitisation and evaluation.
