Key informant interviews Two sampling strategies were used to select key informants.
For most of our outcomes only one or two studies provided dataand overall results were inconsistent. We included 12 randomised trials with data for more than 11, women. The original survey was developed by the research team, incorporating evidence from the literature and suggestions from the reference group established for the public review.
Given that one third of women in Victoria receive postnatal care in a private hospital we undertook a similar statewide review of private postnatal care PinC Private.
The Role of the MHTF Historically, the global maternal health community has largely focused on access to high quality maternity care during pregnancy, labor and delivery. However, health systems challenges such shortages within the healthcare workforce and make implementation difficult, and many facilities do not have the supplies they need to deliver FANC appropriately.
The reference group brought together a range of people with relevant backgrounds and experience in postnatal care to contribute ideas and advice to the research team at all stages. Those seeking services should be deeply involved in how, where, when and by whom services are provided.
Further well designed RCTs evaluating this complex intervention will be required to formulate the optimal package.
