Join the Maternity and newborn learning health network to hear from Dr Stefan Kane speaking on decision making around timing of birth.
Decisions about timing of birth are based on balancing the health benefits to mothers and babies with any risk factors. There is increasing awareness that using a framework of shared decision making is most effective in achieving the provision of safe, respectful, person-centred care.
Dr Stefan Kane will explore what shared decision making is and isn’t, and discuss principles that can be applied by clinicians and women and their families/carers in maternity care, using timing of birth as an example.
