Recommendation details

Recommendation ID: CG62/4
Question: The ‚??Antenatal assessment tool‚??:- Multicentred validation studies are required in the UK to evaluate the use of the ‚??Antenatal assessment tool‚??. Using structured questions, the tool aims to support the routine antenatal care of all women by identifying women who may require additional care. The tool identifies women who: ‚?Ę can remain within or return to the routine antenatal pathway of care ‚?Ę may need additional obstetric care for medical reasons ‚?Ę may need social support and/or medical care for a variety of socially complex reasons

Any explanatory
notes (if applicable):
Why this is important:- The idea of some form of assessment tool to help group pregnant women into low-risk (midwifery-only care) and increased-risk (midwifery and obstetric care) categories is not new. The ‚??Antenatal assessment tool‚?? has been developed using a consensus approach. Once developed, it will be essential to subject the tool to a multicentred validation study. The validated tool should have the potential to identify a third group of women who are particularly vulnerable and at increased risk of maternal and perinatal death.
