    After three phases of reporting and input from many people, the final report (http://www.menzies.edu.au/icms_docs/243265_Maternal_Health_Final_Report.pdf) and accompanying data supplement (http://www.menzies.edu.au/icms_docs/243263_Maternal_Health_Data_Supplement.pdf) for ‘Priority Evidence-Practice Gaps in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Maternal Health Care’ are now available.

    The report presents:

    • Priority gaps in maternal care

    • Barriers and enablers to addressing these gaps

    • Strategies for improvement.

    A summary of key messages from the report is also available here: http://www.menzies.edu.au/icms_docs/248415_Maternal_health_final_report_key_messages.pdf

    Thank you for your time and feedback on the ABCD CQI data and the development of this report. Your contribution has been valuable in increasing understanding of how to improve maternal health care. We hope this report will be useful to you.
