Project Description

In this paper, I examined the 30 minute decision-to-incision policy based on a review of the grey literature in Canada. This review took two main criteria into consideration: 1) practitioners and policymakers have found that the policy and practice are incongruent with the evidence base, and 2) several recent scientific studies have suggested that the actual time between decision and incision should be either lower or higher than the 30 minute mark, depending on the urgency of the situation. This is part of a larger project that will consider the overall implications of distance to emergency obstetrical services on women and maternity caregivers via quantitative and qualitative methods.
