Editor-in-Chief of the African Journal of Primary Health Care & Family Medicine (PHCFM), Professor Robert Mash, interviews one of the co-authors, Samuel M. Mulongo, on the recent article published in the scholarly journal.
Background: Continuity and coordination of care are core principles of high-quality primary health care. Optimising continuity and coordination improves maternal satisfaction. However, their association with morbidity and mortality outcomes is unclear. The obstetric near-miss approach can be used to investigate whether continuity and coordination influences the occurrence of a severe maternal outcome.
Aim: To compare self-reported continuity and coordination of care between obstetric near-miss survivors and those without near miss during pregnancy, delivery and postpartum.
