BAPM Frameworks for Practice

A BAPM Framework for Practice is a practical guidance document for an aspect of neonatal practice. It will be evidence based wherever possible but if evidence is not available then recommendations may be based on a professional consensus view. A framework for practice is intended as an overarching document that can be used by local units and/or networks to produce their own guidelines.
