This Month's QI Story - Unite - Keeping Families Together​

This month we focus on an Improvement Story from Dundee, who share their successes and challenges in reducing term admissions in their unit.

Term admissions represented over half of all admissions to their neonatal unit and was increasing despite a downward trend in live births across our region.  The largest category of term admissions was respiratory distress, followed by weight loss, poor feeding and jaundice. 

Find out how they have shown a sustained reduction in absolute term admissions by 25%.
