The missing link between clinical guidelines and reality: co-creation with birth attendants in Tanzania
The presentation is by Nanna Maaløe, University of Copenhagen.
To end the international crisis of preventable deaths in low- and middle-income countries, evidence-informed and cost-efficient health care is urgently needed, for which clinical practice guidelines are pivotal. However, from several fields of medicine, fundamental gaps continue to be reported between internationally derived clinical guidelines and realistic best practice. Within maternal health, the PartoMa project in Tanzania aims at addressing this long-standing injustice of leaving health providers without useful guidance. This session will give insight into Nanna Maaløe and her colleagues’ work on the PartoMa project, and more broadly to challenges and strengths in both non-contextualized and contextualized clinical decision support tools.
