Maternity services must be obstetric-led
The AMA has made a submission to the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing on the proposed new National Maternity Services Strategy.
AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, said today that the AMA is adamant that national maternity services must use a collaborative care model that is led by obstetricians or general practice obstetricians.
Dr Bartone said that best-practice maternity care in the 21st century is provided by a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals.
