Workshop on perinatal care : report on a WHO expert meeting, Venice, Italy 16-18 April 1998
AbstractWhile perinatal care is changing in all the countries of the WHO European Region, it particularly needs reinforcement in the newly independent states of the former USSR and the countries of central and eastern Europe. This requires the development of specific strategies and tools. The WHO Regional Office for Europe, in close collaboration with the Veneto region of Italy, organized a Workshop on Perinatal Care to examine the available material, to identify the gaps and to create a task force to address them. Over 30 gynaecologists, obstetricians, neonatologists, midwives and educators, from Bulgaria, Canada, Estonia, Georgia, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Romania, the Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine and the United Kingdom, attended. They agreed that strategies for interventions in perinatal care should include antenatal care and education, delivery care, the identification and correct management of obstetric complications, post-partum care and neonatal care. The participants endorsed the principles of protecting, promoting and supporting effective perinatal care and recommended the formation of a Task Force on Perinatal Care to support and advise on effective perinatal care and to develop appropriate strategies and tools for specific problems
