Welcome to the National Perinatal Epidemiology Centre (NPEC)
The National Perinatal Epidemiology Centre (NPEC) is a crucial clinical audit centre located within Cork University Maternity Hospital in Ireland. Our primary mission is to collaborate closely with maternity services across the nation to harness the power of clinical audit data and epidemiological evidence. Our goal is to translate these insights into tangible improvements in maternity care for families throughout Ireland.*
At the NPEC, we acknowledge that the statistics presented in our reports represent our patients, and we use this data to learn from past experiences and produce recommendations for improved care. Please be aware that the data discussed in this website might be distressing or emotionally challenging to read. Please remember to prioritize self-care and seek support if needed while engaging with this material.
Our website serves as a central hub for individuals and professionals interested in the work carried out by the NPEC. This website aims to provide information about our ongoing initiatives, research projects, and collaborations with different maternity services across Ireland.
Thank you for visiting the NPEC website. We invite you to explore our resources, engage with our work, and join us in our mission to improve maternity care for families across Ireland.
