Project Description

During the third year of her undergraduate studies, Dr. Bourgeault’s research publications on Maternal Health and Midwifery inspired Shabnaz to be involved. As a student researcher, she worked with Dr. Bourgeault to evaluate the MSH-CARES Initiative with the greater goal of reducing C-section rates by 5% in low risk women. Her role as a researcher included exploring the requirements of an effective knowledge transfer of a multifaceted intervention to reduce C- section rates from one community hospital to another. This involved an exploration of why the Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) in Ottawa, Ontario is interested in adopting the MSH-CARES Initiative and how they intend on implementing this intervention.
