RM+RM = better midwifery care – National Nursing Research Unit – May 2011

“What do we know about associations between registered midwife staffing levels and better care for women?
 
Growing research evidence suggests that there is a strong link between nurse staffing and patient outcomes in the acute sector. However, there is limited empirical evidence on the relationship between maternity staffing, maternity workforce characteristics and birth outcomes. Such evidence is much needed, given current policies aimed at improving maternity care. In this Policy+ we draw on work undertaken by the National Nursing Research Unit that sought to assess the feasibility of using routinely available data to measure the impact that maternity staffing has on birth outcomes in maternity services at trust level in England.”
