BAPM special interest groups and affiliated groups allow professionals with an interest in a certain area to communicate and improve and share best practice on an ongoing basis. They act as a voice for that area of interest to feed into the BAPM Executive Committee and work programme.
Special Interest Groups
Special Interest Groups are managed by BAPM. You need to be a member of BAPM to be a member of a Special Interest Group.

Become a BAPM Special Interest or Affiliated Group
BAPM special interest or affiliated groups can start in two ways:
1. If you are part of an existing neonatal specialist group that wishes to form closer ties with BAPM we can draw up an agreement to support each other.
2. If you are an individual or group of individuals that wishes to launch a group on a certain topic area relevant to neonatal professionals then BAPM can help you do this.
