Seeking a nomination from Nga Maia for the Maternity Guidelines Review Steering Group
The Ministry of Health has contracted Allen + Clarke to review and update five clinical maternity guidelines to provide nationally consistent, evidence-based advice. The five guidelines to be updated are:
Guidelines for Consultation with Obstetric and Related Medical Services (Referral Guidelines), 2012
Observation of Mother and Baby in the Immediate Postnatal Period: Consensus Statements Guiding Practice, 2012
National Consensus Guideline for Treatment of Postpartum Haemorrhage (PPH), 2013
Screening, Diagnosis and Management of Gestational Diabetes in New Zealand: A clinical practice guideline (the GDM guideline), 2014, and
Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypertension and Pre-eclampsia in Pregnancy in New Zealand: A clinical practice guideline, 2018.
To guide Allen + Clarke’s work, we expect to establish a multidisciplinary Steering Group. This Group will provide guidance to our team throughout the review and update of the guidelines (i.e., from February 2021 until May 2022). I have attached an indicative terms of reference to this email for your information. We are now seeking nominations for candidates to appoint to this Steering Group. It would be great to have the Nga Maia’s assistance to identify a suitable person! We expect to hold the first Steering Group meeting in late February 2021.
We would welcome a nominee from Nga Maia. Ideally, this person would be an experienced midwife and, if possible, have significant expertise in one or more of the subject areas covered by the five guidelines as well as experience working in a range of settings. Expertise/experience in guidelines development or co-chairing similar groups would be great! This individual(s) would be representing Nga Maia, noting that the final guideline will need to be widely endorsed.
