On behalf of the QUILT team, early findings will be presented by Ryan Brydges and Stella Ng at the SMH Clinical and Population Research Rounds.
Thursday, May 23 from 12pm-1pm in Li Ka Shing Room 240
They will present their joint project: An institutional ethnography of transfers of care and consults during labour & delivery
Contested workplaces in the health professions can lead to professional burnout, safety concerns, and poor patient outcome. Much evidence has established that the labour and deliver (L&D) unit is a contested workplace across numerous professional settings. We will present early findings from a study focused on the social coordination of transfers of care and consults between obstetricians, midwives, and nurses during labour and delivery care, identifying opportunities for improved processes.
