The survey examined SBAs’ training, knowledge, practices and facility environment as they relate to intrapartum and postpartum bladder care and management of prolonged/obstructed labor.Prolonged/obstructed labor (P/OL) is a major cause of maternal mortality and morbidity, including obstetric fistula, other forms of incontinence and nerve injuries. Bladder care is an important part of routine intrapartum care and plays an important role in postpartum management of P/OL. Urinary catheterization (UC) in the postpartum period is recommended to help prevent obstetric fistula and may help treat a proportion of “fresh” fistula.However, little is known about current knowledge and practices among SBAs regarding intrapartum and postpartum bladder care, including the feasibility and acceptability of UC for care after P/OL. To fill this gap, the Fistula Care Plus (FC+) project conducted a key informant survey of SBAs to better understand the range of intrapartum and postpartum clinical practices in LMICs, as well as to describe SBAs’ knowledge and the resources available to them (e.g., protocols, in-service training and supplies).Join us to hear the first report on survey findings, including notable differences and disparities between regions and facility types/settings. FC+ staff will present the findings from this global SBA survey and maternal health experts will discuss program and research implications, particularly for midwifery training and practice.Registration information:“A Global Survey of Skilled Birth Attendants on Intra- and Postpartum Bladder Care and Management of Prolonged/Obstructed Labor”Date: 10 April 2018Time: 9–10 am (EDT)Where: GoToWebinarRegister for the webinar here>>After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.Webinar presenters:Elly Arnoff: Program Associate for Evaluation and Research, Fistula Care PlusSheena Currie: Senior Maternal Health Advisor, JhpiegoVandana Tripathi: Deputy Director, Fistula Care Plus—Learn more on the Fistula Care Plus website.Read the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF)’s mini-series on obstetric fistula:[Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3].Browse other upcoming maternal health-related events.Share this:last_img
