Using the PRAM tool for planning resources for postnatal care

Helen Cheyne and John Bowers, University of Stirling, present their work on a tool to support redesign of postnatal services. PRAM (Postnatal Resource Allocation Model) aims to support clinicians and service managers to make transparent, evidence-informed decisions about allocation of resources in postnatal care.

Helen Cheyne is the lead in Maternal & Child Health Research at the Nursing Midwifery & Allied Health Professions (NMAHP) Research Unit and is an RCM (Scotland) Professor of Midwifery. John Bowers is a Professor at the Management, Work & Organisation Division and uses modelling to inform resource allocation and management systems in a number of settings from offshore oil to healthcare. Published information on PRAM can be found online. PRAM was funded by the Royal College of Midwives, The Scottish Government Chief Nurse’s Office and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.
