PERIPrem bundle: Thermoregulation

No matter where you are in your normothermia journey, PERIPrem is here to offer support and guidance to help your unit achieve normothermia on admission for all extreme preterm infants.

We can sometimes be mistaken for believing that normothermia is namely the Neonatal team’s responsibility, but everything from the temperature of the delivery room to thermoregulatory care during delayed cord clamping will make a difference. PERIPrem’s resources are ready for your team’s use below and there are also resources available via BAPM’s Normothermia toolkit.

Please also take advantage of the PERIPrem quality improvement coaching team to find ways to effectively achieve sustainable success in your unit

We encourage you to look across the three “capsules” of Process, Training and Education and Communications and Engagement when planning and implementing any changes, we know from experience that action needs to be taken across all three capsules to see a progress. These areas will be covered in the unit-level training.

Pay attention to how you will embed and sustain the improvements you have made and you can use the embedding and sustaining change tool (coming soon) to shape your thinking in doing so.
