BACKGROUND The Safer Baby Bundle (SBB) eLearning is an online education module that addresses practice gaps in stillbirth prevention in Australia. It provides healthcare professionals with evidence-based resources for: smoking cessation; fetal growth restriction; decreased fetal movements; maternal safe going-to-sleep position; and timing of birth for women with risk factors for stillbirth. AIMS To determine whether participants' reported knowledge and confidence in providing care designed to re...

AIMS To develop a core outcome set for trials investigating interventions to prevent stillbirth. MATERIALS & METHODS Outcomes identified from a systematic literature review and semi-structured interviews with parents in Australia and the UK were entered into a two-round online Delphi survey and focus group/consensus meetings. RESULTS A core outcome set containing 11 outcomes in two categories. Five outcomes were related to the mother; fetal loss, onset of and mode of delivery, maternal mortality...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To explore men's experiences of termination of pregnancy for life-limiting foetal anomaly, including how healthcare providers, systems and policies can best support men and their families. BACKGROUND While there is a sizable body of research and recommendations relating to women's experiences of grief and support needs following a termination of pregnancy for foetal anomaly, very few studies specifically examine men's experiences. METHODS Semi-structured interviews were compl...

Abstract Background Going-to-sleep in the supine position in later pregnancy (≥28 weeks) has been identified as a risk factor for stillbirth. Internationally, public awareness campaigns have been undertaken encouraging women to sleep on their side during late pregnancy. Aim This study aimed to identify sleep practices, attitudes and knowledge in pregnant women, to inform an Australian safe sleeping campaign. Methods A web-based survey of pregnant women ≥28 weeks’ gestation conducted from Novembe...

Abstract Objective To determine which outcomes have been previously reported in previous stillbirth prevention studies. Research Design Systematic review of reviews: We searched the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, EMBASE and Pubmed for systematic reviews and meta-analyses investigating interventions to prevent stillbirth and its major risk factors. Data collection and analysis: Two reviewers identified and extracted outcomes independently. Outcomes were categorised under relevant domain...

Background Venous thromboembolism (VTE), although rare, is a major cause of maternal mortality and morbidity. Some women are at increased risk of VTE during pregnancy and the early postnatal period (e.g. caesarean section, family history of VTE, or thrombophilia), and so prophylaxis may be considered. As some methods of prophylaxis carry risks of adverse effects, and risk of VTE is often low, benefits of thromboprophylaxis may be outweighed by harms. Objectives To assess the effects of thrombopr...

BACKGROUND The translation of evidence from clinical trials into practice is complex. One approach to facilitating this translation is to consider the 'implementability' of trials as they are designed and conducted. Implementability of trials refers to characteristics of the design, execution and reporting of a late-phase clinical trial that can influence the capacity for the evidence generated by that trial to be implemented. On behalf of the Australian Clinical Trials Alliance (ACTA), the nati...

Background: Maternal perception of decreased fetal movements (DFM) is associated with stillbirth. The My Baby’s Movements (MBM) trial aimed to evaluate the impact on stillbirth rates of a multifaceted awareness package for women and clinicians. Methods: A stepped wedge cluster randomised controlled trial was undertaken with 8 groups of 3-5 hospitals in Australia and New Zealand at four-monthly intervals, targeting women with a singleton pregnancy without major fetal anomaly at ≥28 weeks’ gestati...
