Overview

The future of primary maternity care in Canada has become a topic of considerable discussion and concern in recent years. Maternity care providers, including family physicians,obstetricians and registered midwives, report eroding trust and challenging communication, and women at various stages of pregnancy are experiencing unclear and inconsistent maternity care throughout their journey.

To support spread of successful work to improve maternity care in BC, Shared Care initiated a ‘spread network’ to support an Interprofessional Collaborative Approach (IPC) to care. Interprofessional collaborative (IPC) practice has been widely promoted as an effective and efficient way to increase access for women to quality care and to improve provider satisfaction and retention.
