The Maternity Improvement Group

Maternity Service Improvement Group

The aim of the Maternity Improvement Group is to champion improved outcomes for women and babies, through the use of operational and clinical data to focus on evidence based activities designed to reduce complications, increase service efficiency and enable woman and family centred care. 

 Many health services are experiencing a rapid growth in maternity service activities with limited resources, yet we must strive to maintain optimal outcomes for women and babies receiving our care. The increasing complexities pregnant women present with, challenge our services. Early in the year members are invited to participate in planning the specifics of the workshop and changes to the Maternity Reports to meet the needs of members.

The focus of the 2020 two day workshop in Sydney on 27th and 28th May 2020:  will be on models of care that fully utilise the varying skills of the maternity team and strategies to enable well women to avoid intervention. We will be seeking exemplars that improve the woman and her newborn's journey through the system. 

The Maternity Improvement Group promotes networking between Australian and New Zealand Hospitals to explore and implement service improvement activities that both streamline services for women and minimise interventions safely where possible.
