What is the Neonatal Priority Setting Partnership?

We are a group of healthcare professionals and parent representatives that have come together to oversee a process to identify and prioritise research questions that can be tested in randomised trials in UK neonatal care. Answers to the questions submitted should improve neonatal care and reduce unwanted variations in practice.

Steering Group Members

What will the partnership do?

Phase 1 - Invite submissions of research questions using a question building tool.

Phase 2 - Review the submitted questions and develop a final list (removing any duplicates, questions that have already been answered, and those out of scope.)

Phase 3 - Ask the perinatal community to prioritise questions in order of importance by completing surveys.

Phase 4 - Disseminate the results to stakeholders including research organisations such as the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). 

How can I take part?

We are currently in phase 3 of the process outlined above. During phase 1, over 250 questions were submitted and were reviewed by the committee. The final list of questions are now available for you to prioritise. Anyone is welcome to take part in this stage including those that submitted a question during phase 1.

Prioritise the questions

Who can get involved?

All those invested in neonatal care are encouraged to take part (including but not limited to) doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, parents, former patients and researchers to make sure we can identify the questions most important to all of us.

Can I still submit a question?

During the first Delphi round there is a chance to submit a new question at the end of the prioritisation process. Please join the survey to prioritise the questions and if your question has not already been asked you can add it at the end.
