Birmingham symptom-specific obstetric triage system (BSOTS) - Maternity Triage - 16 February 2022 at 12:30pm (AEDT)

 

The Birmingham symptom-specific obstetric triage system (BSOTS) was co-produced in 2013 by midwives and Obstetricians from Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and researchers at the University of Birmingham.
The system is based on established triage systems in emergency medicine and uses a uniform assessment with clinical prioritisation of the common conditions that women present within maternity triage.
In November 2019, the Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s at Western Health were the first maternity unit in Australia to implement BSOTS into their maternity assessment centre.

In this presentation, the presenters will;

  • Outline how BSOTS works and how it caters specifically for pregnant and postnatal women
  • The experience of implementation of BSOTS in an Australian maternity unit, including the benefits and learnings
