Management of post-term pregnancies - Protocol for Systematic review - project description

Published Updated

We will examine the effects of inducing labour at or beyond 41 weeks of gestation compared with monitoring up to 42 weeks.


Summary

There is some disagreement among health professionals on the management of post-term pregnancies. The WHO recommends offering induction of labour at or beyond 41 gestational weeks.

 

We will examine the effects of inducting labour at or beyond 41 weeks of gestation compared with monitoring up to 42 weeks.

 

We will carry out a systematic review of randomised trials addressing our research question. We will also evaluate the transferability of the research findings to Norwegian settings. The studies are retrieved from a 2018 Cochrane systematic review and from systematic literature searches in electronic databases, respectively. Otherwise, we use methods described in the Cochrane review and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health's methodological handbook.
