Professor Jane Sandall (Social Science and Women's Health, King's College London) delivers a short talk summarising the findings of studies investigating the provision of care in Obstetric and Maternity units around the country. Her talk focuses on the studies' findings, particularly noting the disparities of choice given to women nationwide. Her talk ends with how better care might be achieved.
This lecture was filmed at an event called:"Birthplace: New evidence, key findings and implications for maternity care"
RSM event description:
"The Birthplace in England programme of research, funded by The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Service Delivery and Organisation (SDO) and the Department of Health Policy Research Programme, has addressed major gaps in the evidence about the current provision of maternity services and the safety, quality and cost of care around the birth of their baby and the planned place of birth. With all trusts in England participating in one or more components of the programme, and the extensive involvement of midwives and clinicians from all over the country, data were collected and analysed concerning the maternity care and outcomes for 80,000 women and their babies.
The findings from this unique study are of relevance to all the professional groups involved in maternity care, those planning and commissioning services, as well as to child-bearing women and their families.
This dissemination meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the study findings, to explore the impact of these and consider the next steps in terms of further research."
