The relationship of travel distance to delivery institutions and accompanimient for women giving birth: A systematic review
This content is archived and will not be updated.
The objective of this systematic review is to answer the following questions: What is the relationship of distance to delivery institution for unwanted events, risk of complications and illness for the pregnant woman and the foetus/newborn? And: What is the relationship of accompaniment services compared with no accompaniment on unwanted events, risk of complications and illness for the woman and the foetus/new-born who live more than 90 minutes from a delivery centre?
After input from the authors of the two Norwegian included studies, we have decided to revise the report about The relationship of travel distance to delivery institutions and accompaniment for women giving birth. The original report will be archived and will be replaced by the revised version as soon as it is completed.
In the revised version we have corrected for one error, reassessed the Risk of Bias for the Norwegian studies and our confidence in the evidence (GRADE) when necessary. We have also tried to make the description of the methods and our reasons behind them clearer. The changes will probably not have any meaningful impact on the conclusions.
