Neonatal early warning system tool now adapted into elearning

Posted on: September 15th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

The new national Newborn Early Warning Track and Trigger (NEWTT2) tool has now been adapted into an interactive elearning resource for maternity teams.

The current warning system supports maternal and neonatal staff to recognise early indicators of clinical deterioration in newborn infants and to improve outcomes with appropriate interventions.

The new programme, developed with NHS England and DEQ Quality Transformation, introduces NEWTT2 and features a structured guide on how to use the tool. It also includes several guided clinical case studies to illustrate how the tool works in a clinical setting.

It will enable midwives, obstetricians, and maternity support colleagues in all maternity units in England to support staff to learn how to use this new tool as part of the implementation process, supported by NHS England and your local Patient safety collaborative.

After completing the session, learners will have greater understanding of how to record physiological observations and understand whether escalation of care is required. Learners will also understand which members of the multi-disciplinary team need to be alerted and what timeframes are necessary.

Learners can access the session here.
