Clients, Colleagues, or Critics? Negotiating Gaps between evidence and community standards
Canada Saraswathi Vedam, RM FACNM MSN Sci D(hc)

Saraswathi Vedam is Lead Investigator of the Birth Place Lab, at the University of British Columbia. She has also been a clinician and educator for over 30 years. Her scholarly work includes the CIHR-funded Canadian Birth Place Study examining attitudes to home birth among maternity care providers, and Changing Childbirth in BC, a provincial, community-based participatory study of women’s preferences for maternity care. She leads the US Birth Place Mapping Study on integration of midwives across birth settings, and the Giving Voice to Mothers Study that explores maternity experiences among women of colour, and those who plan home births. To apply her findings to pragmatic tools that improve quality and safety, she developed MAPi, the Movement and Pulse index for assessment of fetal well-being, and the quality measures: the Mothers’ Autonomy in Decision Making (MADM) scale and the Mothers on Respect (MORi) index. Professor Vedam has been active in setting international policy on place of birth, midwifery education and regulation. She convened 3 national Home Birth Summits, and chaired the 5th International Normal Labour and Birth Research conference in Vancouver.

Objective 1: List 3 key findings of recent research on women's experiences of and preferences for decision making in maternity care.
Objective 2: Discuss the interaction of culture and race with birth decisions and provider-patient conflict.
Objective 3: Identify 2 methods to promote respectful maternity care through interprofessional education or communication.
Objective 4: Engage in a self-evaluation of their own dialogue style and transparency around provider opinion and bias.
Objective 5: Describe 3 specific strategies for effecting change or compromise when there is conflict between the best available evidence and client preferences, consultant recommendations, or community standards

Abstract:What does emerging science on neurobiology and epigenetics tell us about decision making in pregnancy, labour and birth? Does birth place matter? Should caesarean reduction be the goal? How long is labour? How long is human gestation? How accurate is an ultrasound date? What happens when clients want care that does not align with community standard? How do our messages about evidence and risk affect quality and safety?
What do women say? What do providers believe? This session will explore new patient-centered outcomes from research on quality, safety, risk and responsibility. Together we will review and discuss emerging tools and strategies to facilitate conversations about the best available evidence and respectful maternity care.
