Supporting WHA members to reduce rates to perineal tears

Ongoing efforts are in place to continue to support WHA member services interested in reducing this harm to women. WHA member hospitals with an interest in improving care for women by reducing rates of third and fourth degree tears are invited to join WHA’s Life QI portal and to share with peers their experience of using quality improvement methods to reduce rates of severe perineal tears and to sustain reduced rates over time.

If you are interested in viewing the LifeQI site or would like to take WHA up on the offer to have a Life QI log in and collaborate with peer services through WHA please contact our Improvement program manager Adele Kelly.
