Perinatal care : planning for appropriate technologies : report on a course, Trieste, 7-18 October 1996
ResumoThe widespread introduction of sophisticated technology in neonatal and perinatal care in many countries, without assessment, has resulted in weakened impact, increased costs, diversion of resources and a dehumanized approach to health care. The WHO Regional Office for Europe, with the Bureau for International Health of the Istituto per l'Infanzia ( a WHO Collaborating Centre), co-sponsored a course in 1995 to help decision-makers and planners evaluate the appropriateness of equipment for their perinatal care needs and to plan its purchase, use and maintenance. Following the success of the first course, the two partners co-sponsored a second course with the same aims in 1996. It showed the need for technical support in and the dissemination of relevant information on perinatal care

Quality development in perinatal care : the OBSQID project : report on a WHO meeting, Oporto, Portugal 23-24 June 2000 World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe (EUR/00/5016725, 2000)Continuous quality of care development entails (a) health care providers comparing their outcomes with those of their peers and (b) the identification, through data collection and analysis, of centres demonstrating best practice and the most rational use of technology in order that their knowledge and expertise may be disseminated and exploited. To this end, the Quality of Health Systems Programme has facilitated consensus across Europe on health indicators within various medical specialties. These indicators and variables are compiled in data ...

Making pregnancy safer/promoting effective perinatal care : activity report - Turkmenistan 2002-2005 World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe (EUR/06/5061725, 2006)The greatest challenges in maternal and child health care in the European region include over-medicalisation, poor health education and insufficient inter-professional and multi-disciplinary collaboration. The final step of the CARAK project in Turkmenistan was to support appropriate use of technology for perinatal care, birth and neonatal care; equipment was purchased based on the CARAK evaluation and a 2001 WHO-Europe mission to Ashgabad. A technical training programme on the operational aspects of medical equipment management and maintenance ...
