Neonatal near-miss refers to a newborn who presented with clinical features consistent with severe complications of antenatal or intrapartum events, almost died, and survived. Combined with perinatal mortality review, audit of NNM (often termed neonatal morbidity review) has potential to inform strategies to prevent perinatal adverse outcomes. There is a need to better understand the NNM cohort to inform prevention strategies. A pre-requisite to reduce these adverse events is a clear definition of NNM.
If you are a health worker and/ or researcher with expertise in the perinatal field, you are invited to take part in this research project to help in understanding the neonatal near-miss cohort.
We want to investigate the current approach and the possible barriers encountered to the implementation of neonatal near-miss audits. We are also interested in your thoughts about the neonatal near-miss definition and identification criteria.
