Project ID: 2017-040/2018 0950 023 000
Type of Response: Research project
Knowledge User: Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health
ICES Scientists: Liz Darling, Erin Graves
Summary: A gap analysis of obstetric, midwifery and birthing services, collectively referred to as intrapartum care, can vary greatly across the province. Data on how these services are distributed and how different areas compare to one another in clinical outcomes are of interest. The research evidence will be used to identify the current range of capacities and outcomes, and will support the planning, design and implementation of strategies and quality improvement efforts in Ontario.
