Maternal Health and Wellbeing

Knowledge translation

It is essential that information gained through research is translated into practice as rapidly as possible. One of the ways in which this occurs is through the development of evidence based guidance for practice.

Members of the Maternal Health and Wellbeing Research Group, in conjunction with the Centre for Evidence based Healthcare, are engaged in this in the development of guidance to support the care of women in labour in all settings.
