Description

This conferences focuses on the important issue of Saving Babies Lives: Reducing Stillbirth, and implementing the March 2019 Version 2 of the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle. The stillbirth rate in the UK is high relative to other similar European Countries, it has been demonstrated that the implementation of key interventions can lead to reductions in the stillbirth rate in line with the national ambition to reduce the number of stillbirths, neonatal deaths, maternal deaths and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth by 50% by 2030 and by 20% by 2020. “The success of the Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle version 2 ultimately rests on its implementation. It was heartening to see so many maternity services enthusiastically implement version one with some achieving dramatic reductions in mortality. The NHS Long Term Plan reiterates the NHS’s commitment to a 50% reduction in stillbirth, maternal mortality, neonatal mortality and serious brain injury and a reduction in preterm birth rate, from 8% to 6%, by 2025.”Matthew Jolly National Clinical Director for Maternity and Women’s Health, NHS England, March 2019“15 babies die every day in the UK before, during or shortly after birth. The rates of stillbirths have fallen a little in recent years, after decades of stagnation. But the number of babies dying remains too high and must fall faster: the rate of reduction in the UK is up to three times slower than other European countries; neonatal deaths have even risen slightly in the last two years.”Sands 2018 This conference will enable you to:Network with colleagues who are working to deliver best practice in the prevention of stillbirthReflect on the Lived Experience of losing a baby through stillbirthExplore the changes outlined in version 2 of the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle Learn from outstanding practice in delivering the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle Version 2 and Every Baby CountsReflect on national developments and learning from MBRRACE-UK: Mothers and Babies: Reducing Risk through Audits and Confidential Enquiries across the UKImprove the way you investigate and learn using the National Perinatal Mortality Review ToolDevelop your skills in the Effective Implementation of the Saving Babies Lives Care BundleUnderstand how you identify and improve the management of risk factorsIdentify key strategies for learning from perinatal mortality reviews at a local levelEnsure you implementing the latest evidence to reduce Stillbirth as a result of incidents during labourUnderstand how you can better support women and families following stillbirthSelf assess and reflect on your own practice
