    Canadian health care not meeting the needs of rural maternity care providers and patients

    (Ottawa, ON, October 10, 2012) – Rural maternity care services in Canada are under stress due to reduced or eliminated service levels leading to increased stress, personal costs and negative delivery outcomes. New approaches are needed to support collaborative, integrated, and safe care for mothers and newborns in rural Canada, as well as for the physicians and other health professionals who serve in rural and remote communities. This is the finding addressed in the new Joint Position Paper on Rural Maternity Care issued today by the College of Family Physicians of Canada, the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada, the Canadian Association of Midwives, and the Canadian Association of Perinatal and Women’s Health Nurses.
