Quality development in perinatal care : the OBSQID Project : report on the fourth WHO workshop, Poznan, Poland, 23-25 October 1997
AbstractThe obstetrical quality indicators and data collection (OBSQID) project for quality development in perinatal care involves an extensive network of health care professionals, authorities, researchers, professional associations and third-party payers throughout the WHO European Region. Workshops organized by the WHO Regional Office for Europe have developed and refined data collection tools for the project. The objective of the Fourth Workshop was to further quality development and the appropriate use of technology in perinatal care. The Workshop was important in marking the transition of OBSQID into the implementation phase. The participants assessed the results and problems of data collection activities to date. After identifying centres of good practice and those in need, partnerships were established to ensure the transfer and exchange of knowledge and expertise. The impact of such partnerships will be monitored through data collection using the OBSQID tools and reflected in perinatal outcomes
