The National Collaborative aims to safely reduce preterm (less than 37 weeks) and early term birth (37- under 39 weeks) across Australia by supporting hospitals to adopt evidence-based changes in clinical care.

The changes were developed in 2014 by the Australian Preterm Birth Prevention Alliance and have since been successful in reducing rates of preterm birth in Western Australia, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory.

We’re partnering with the Australian Preterm Birth Prevention Alliance, Women’s Healthcare Australasia (WHA) and Institute Healthcare Improvement (IHI), to support Victorian health services to adopt the recommended interventions.

We’re inviting teams from public hospitals to contribute by implementing the approaches and sharing their learnings with each other across Australia.

How to apply

Applications are closed.
