In light of the recent discussions around guidelines, I was reminded of Maggie Bank's article "But whose art frames the questions?".
Midwives need to be vigilant to ensure the defining of appropriate midwifery practice has not been colonized by obstetric thought. Any guiding must reflect the essential Midwifery Model of Care in the evidence amassed and the way in which it is applied. ...
Whilst the discussion is centred around the NZ scene, it is applicable to our conditions also. Maggie's thoughts are well worth considering.
