An update from the PartoMa Study focusing on pregnancy and childbirth

MD and PhD fellow Nanna Maaløe has in collaboration with two other UCPH researchers Britt Pinkowski Tersbøl and Ib Christian Bygbjerg published a new article regarding local adaption of PartoMa guidelines in East Africa.

The article Labour management guidelines for a Tanzanian referral hospital: The participatory development process and birth attendants’ perceptions describes the development process of locally achievable, partograph-associated, and peer-reviewed labour management guidelines, and it presents an assessment of professional birth attendants’ perceptions. The paper finds that the PartoMa guidelines ensure readily available, locally achievable, and acceptable support for intrapartum surveillance, triage, and management. This is a crucial example of adapting evidence-based international recommendations to local reality.
