  1. Maternity care embedded in a primary care service Monika Steinmetz, Sue Pullon and Ben Gray Department of Primary Health Care and General Practice University of Otago Wellington Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  2. Maternal and infant health Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  3. Sexual and reproductive health: a recurring and integral part of life Sexually active years Birth Childhood Adolescent Younger adult Older Adult Older age Reproductive years Youth rearing… child rearing Pregnancy, Birth New babies Sue Pullon Dept PHC and GP

  4. A measure of health system effectiveness • Maternal, Perinatal and Infant mortality • Breastfeeding rates; 6 weeks, 3 and 6 months • Immunisation rates; 6 weeks, 3 and 5 months… • Consumer satisfaction Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  5. NZ’s usual model of maternity care • Case based midwifery services – since 1991 • Lead maternity carers (LMCs) – funded as such since 1996 • defining elements: continuity of care, ready access to maternity services, multidisciplinary collaboration… • Obstetric back up from secondary care • Most often independent of primary care services Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  6. Continuity of care • The continuity of not only care but also carer throughout the childbirth experience a feature of the New Zealand system – most similar to the Netherlands, in contrast to Australia, Sweden and the UK. • lead maternity carer (LMC) often remains the primary caregiver even when the pregnancy has become complicated. Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  7. Reducing inequalities • ethical and social inequalities lead to poorer outcomes and experiences for women (Raleigh, et al., 2010) • Outcomes are improved by enabling all women equal and easy access to good quality maternal and child health services Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  8. Multidisciplinary collaboration • Internationally, • big differences in the scopes of practice which regulate and guide midwifery practice. • collaboration with and from maternity services varies extensively • But what we do know…where health needs of patients are more complex, collaboration amongst health care professionals needs to happen to a greater extent - not only of medical but also social care, health promotion and illness prevention. Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  9. The spectrum of collaboration (Spectrum of Collaboration. Oandasan et al., 2006)

  10. Newtown Union Health Service - NUHS Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  11. What does NUHS do? • primary health care in the community for over twenty years • service delivery is holistic and based on whãnau / family-based care within the community, ensuring continuity of care and building of mutual trust and respect • emphasis on community participation at all levels of the service • quality awards for excellence in service provision to the community • the first primary health care service in New Zealand to be accredited by the Te Wanaprogramme in New Zealand in 2002 Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  12. Who does NUHS serve? • 62% of patients - quintiles 4 and 5 of New Zealand Deprivation index (1= least deprivation and 5= most deprivation) • Mixed ethnicity - • Pacific Islanders (21.7%) • European (19.2%), • Middle Eastern (17.1%), • Maori (15.2%) • Asian (15.2%). • African 11.7%. • accessible and appropriate services for people from lower socio-economic groups and from Maori and Pacific backgrounds Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  13. …the multidisciplinary team of health professionals • GPs • Practice nurses • Receptionists • Practice managers • Mental health liaison • Community health workers • …and the team of midwives Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  14. the NUHS team of midwives Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  15. The 5 midwives… • Successfully work in a collaborative service with other primary health professionals whilst remaining autonomous lead maternity carers working in partnership with women • registered patients - access midwifery services as conveniently as any of the other primary care services • ‘casual patients’ - women registered with other primary care providers - ‘maternity only’ care • integrated with child health and other primary care services • midwives provide the lead maternity care; the clients’ other health care needs are met by the GP, Nurses and other associated health professionals. • all midwives are employed and paid by salary - as are all the other staff employed by NUHS. Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  16. …the midwives work a – a team-based ‘shared caseload’ – model • all women receive intra-partum care from the midwife on duty on the day as opposed to each being allocated to an individual midwife. • women get to meet all midwives throughout their antenatal care - a ‘known’ midwife is present at the time of labour and birth. Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  17. The spectrum of collaboration Teamwork

  18. NUHS pregnancy care 2006-2010 1st January 2006 to 1st November 2010 • 702 women/pregnancies (registered + casual) • 441 (63%) normal vaginal birth • 70 (10%) instrumental delivery • 189 (27%) elective or emergency LSCS (national LSCS rate 24%) • Half (49%) in quintiles 4 and 5 • 84% fully or partially breastfeeding at 6 wks (national 6wk rate 79%) • Immunisation rates at 6 weeks - registered patients = between 91 and 100% for every quartile of the study period (Newtown Union Health Service, 2010) • Immunisation rates at 6 months - registered patients = between 96 and 100% in 2010 Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  19. “How do women rate the team-based midwifery care they receive at the Newtown Union Health Service?” Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  20. Consumer satisfaction survey • Written form - in English - given to women at discharge from service – SAE • Based on generic questionnaire from Midwifery council • A requirement of the service Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  21. Survey details • 5-point Likert scale questions (1= unsatisfied…5= very satisfied) asking about… • Satisfaction with midwifery support provided • Ease of contact with midwives • Amount and quality of information to make good choices about care • Feeling safe • Treated with courtesy and respect • Usefulness of discharge visit? • And open ended questions asking about • Positive aspects of care • Possible improvements • What could change for the better • Other Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  22. Responses • About half the women cared for by the midwifery team are registered patients; the other half casual • Overall low response rate – variable each year • Primiparous and NZ European women far more likely to complete and return the discharge consumer satisfaction survey Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  23. Findings

  24. Findings Themes from open ended questions and comments : STRENGTHSWEAKNESSESSUGGESTIONS • Having a team - not enough time at visits - clear PN appts. • Experienced midwives - lack of clear PN appts. - more time at visits • Good availability - level of antenatal info - more info antenatally • Home visits - unclear discharge visit -better communication • Postnatal support • Prompt response • Good level of info • Safe care • Good collaboration

  25. At a glance… • Quality of care well-comparable with national data • Team based care works well for midwives • Additional casual patients make service viable • Consumer satisfaction with team based midwifery care appears very good • High number of return pregnancies • But response rate too low to be confident Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  26. Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  27. Discussion at NUHS… • Keen for improvements • Redesign the questionnaire; collect more data; • Compare registered and casual patients • But also… • Real limitations of written questionnaires • English as a second or third language • Need for other feedback Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon

  28. On going work at NUHS… • Revised satisfaction questionnaire, data collection ongoing • Focus groups to be held • With health professionals – midwives but also others in service • With women who have had midwifery care at NUHS; casual; registered • Attention to possible need for interpreters Dept PHC and GP Sue Pullon
