Rural maternity care in Canada: Closer to home or farther from care?

1:15 PM to 2:00 PM
Room Name: V - Lecture Theatre

Details:

The attrition of small rural maternity services in Canada – and internationally – is well documented, as are the adverse health and psycho-social outcomes for women, families and communities when there is no local access to care. A by-product of the tide of closures has been the reactive mobilization of community demand for local services, led most prominently but not exclusively by Indigenous communities. This community-level response has moved beyond service delivery expectations to strategic initiatives when service delivery is not forthcoming such as refusing to leave the community for birth, going underground and avoiding prenatal care to avoid detection in the community and, in rare instances, unassisted home birth. Taken together, this response introduces avoidable clinical risk and signals the need to address delivery of maternity care in rural settings.

Alongside this, there is a growing understanding of the system interventions needed to sustain rural services based on population, isolation and population vulnerability. The two emerging models are delivery without local access to caesarean section in communities too small to support a surgical infrastructure, often involving midwifery care, and local delivery supported by Family Physicians with Enhanced Surgical Skills (FPESS) in those centres larger enough to support an OR but too small to support specialist practice. Emerging research suggests that actualizing this support is best achieved through formalized and optimized health service delivery networks anchored by productive and mutually supportive relationships between referral centre specialists and rural community generalist proceduralists.  Although significant progress has been made in actualizing such networks in recent years both in Canada and Internationally, ultimate and lasting success is contingent on the support of all key stakeholders, including specialist Obstetricians.

During this panel, we will:

  • Present evidence on the impact of lack of local access to maternity care, including maternal-newborn outcomes;
  • Discuss the relationship between levels of risk and service delivery levels;
  • Provide an overview of the growing trend towards supporting small rural surgical services within a networked model of care, linking the small rural site with specialists in regional referral centres through clinical coaching, regional Continuous Quality Improvement and ongoing evaluation;
  • Emphasize the importance of the specialists-generalist relationship in sustaining such care.

Learning objectives will include:

  • Comprehending the importance of birth in rural communities;
  • Gaining knowledge of service delivery models suited to disparate community characteristics; and
  • Applying emerging evidence to health planning to meet population need.

Take home messages include:

  • The importance of local maternity care from a psycho-social and health outcomes perspective;
  • The right of women to choose where they give birth within a context of understanding and accepting responsibility for risks incurred; and
  • The importance of specialist support for rural maternity services with and without local access to cesarean section.
