Safer practice in intrapartum care: care bundle project

This was a joint project with the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA).


This project was set up to oversee the development and testing of ‘care bundles’ in intrapartum care, for women requiring electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) during labour and for women with placenta praevia after previous lower segment caesarean section. Care bundles are a collection of interventions needed to effectively and safely care for patients.
