The National Perinatal Epidemiology Centre has established a national audit on the following events in pregnancy:


(a)    Mid-trimester prolonged rupture of membranes

(b)   Delayed interval delivery in premature multiple pregnancy


It is aimed that robust national data on these events will underpin a multidisciplinary national clinical guideline.

A multidisciplinary specialist group has been convened and the audit has been endorsed by the Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the HSE Clinical Care Programme in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Prospective data collection will begin in January 2017.  The data forms for each event are available at the links below and in cases of either event, the relevant data form should be completed and returned to the NPEC.
