2017-04-28 09:23:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary aim of the study is to investigate personal attitudes regarding mode of delivery among both medical health care professionals and non-professionals. We are also investigating whether providing detailed information that might influence one's decision regarding mode of delivery (such as education on pelvic floor disorders or advantages or disadvantages of epidural anaesthesia) will change participants´ opinion how to determine their preferred mode of delivery.

Description

The choice of delivery mode is an individual decision that is affected by personal opinions and feelings about what might be best for one's own body and child. Increasing awareness about the risks of vaginal delivery has led to an increasing rate of cesearean delivery on maternal request.

The primary aim of the study is to investigate personal attitudes regarding mode of delivery among both medical health care professionals and non-professionals. We are also investigating whether providing detailed information that might influence one's decision regarding mode of delivery (such as education on pelvic floor disorders or advantages or disadvantages of epidural anaesthesia) will change participants´ opinion how to determine their preferred mode of delivery.

A secondary aim of the survey is to gather information about personal attitudes regarding:

- epidural anaesthesia for pain relief during delivery

- systems of risk stratification

- postnatal recovery exercises The data will be acquired with an online questionnaire designed for this study. There will be two groups in this study. The first group ("medical professionals") consists of gynecologists with either subspecialization (urogynecology , fetal and maternal medicine, obstetrics, other) and other non-OB/GYN health care providers and medical staff, regardless whether they are nurses, medical assistants, physicians, physiotherapists, midwifes, administration staff. The group of "non-professionals" consists of women who are currently pregnant, and are not healthcare professionals.

A computerized biomedical bibliographic storage and retrieval system operated by the NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE. MEDLARS stands for Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System, which was first introduced in 1964 and evolved into an online system in 1971 called MEDLINE (MEDLARS Online).
