WHA Safety & Quality in Maternity Care Face to Face Insight Forum 2019



Due to a major International Event in Melbourne this Forum will be taking place in Sydney in 2019. 

Why attend?

This annual forum brings together senior executive and clinical leaders who are passionate about improving care and outcomes for women and newborns.  It provides a unique opportunity to network with a multidisciplinary group of peers across maternity services, large and small, who share responsibilities for managing & delivering high quality care to women and their families. 

What will the program cover?

This Forum focuses on the practical realities and opportunities involved in striving to deliver safe, high quality maternal and newborn care.  It enables participants to review changing evidence about best practice, consider trends in labour and birth care emerging from WHA’s clinical benchmarking program, and to share learnings & achievements related to efforts to improve the experience and outcomes of care for women and their families. 

Each year we focus on a different theme raised as a priority by members.  In 2017 we focused on stillbirth prevention & response, in 2018 we looked at the whole issue of rising rates of induction of labour and how to improve the reliability of evidence based IOL care.  The focus for 2019 will be determined in coming months in consultation with the WHA Safety & Quality Special Interest Group members. 

Who should attend?

  • Directors of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
  • Executives of Nursing & Midwifery
  • Directors of neonatal services
  • Executives with responsibility for safety at maternity hospitals & units
  • Medical and midwifery clinicians interested in safety & quality improvement
  • Students & consumers interested in safety & quality improvement in maternity care are most welcome.
