Implementing a Multi disciplinary Service for New born Hip screening

Lisa Hurndall, Plymouth University Hospitals 


The neonatal new born screening service for development dysplasia (DDH) of the hip was previously provided by the neonatology team. They were unable to continue to provide this service and the ultrasound department agreed to provide this service in conjunct ion with the orthopaedic and paediatric physiotherapy department. The time frame to ready the new clinic was short and it was felt that the Plan, Do, Study, Act (PSDA) cycle 1 would be the most effective methodology to implement this service change efficiently.
