Experiences in an Early Pregnancy Unit
What is this project about?
Experiences in an Early Pregnancy Unit in a tertiary maternity hospital in Ireland
The aim of this project is to assess the level of satisfaction of both service users attending, and staff working in, the dedicated Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU) at Cork University Maternity Hospital (CUMH). This will ensure that the unit and the care being provided is addressing the needs of its service users and the staff involved.
The information from this study, will be used to identify areas for improvement in service provision, staff working conditions and ultimately benefit future patient care. This project will allow us to understand the patient perspective of attending an EPU. This unique point of view will allow us to identify areas for continuous service improvement for patients.
What is involved?
Prospective survey of staff working in the EPU, as well as service users attending the EPU, at CUMH.
