Re-orientation of the Austrian parent-child preventive care programme. Part XI: Screening recommendations of the expert working group for pregnancy
Project leaders: Brigitte Piso
Duration: October 2014 – February 2017
On behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health and women
Since October 2014 monthly meetings of an multi-professional and interdisciplinary expert working group (FAG) for the further development of the mother-child pass are held in the Ministry of Health and Women (see also www.bmgf.gv.at/muki). Against the backdrop of the appraisal and contextualization of the scientific basis provided by LBI-HTA, the aim of the expert working group is to formulate specific (predominantly screening-) recommendations for a future mother-child-pass programme.
Aim of the project:
The aim of part XI is to summarise all FAG recommendations for pregnancy and to prepare the results for upcoming process steps (steering committee, stakeholder group).
grouping of screening recommendations by
- pro-/ contra-screening; no recommendation
- screening point in time
- screening method (e.g.; laborartory, ultrasound,..)
In addition, recommended contents of medical history/ risk factor assessment and of counselling will be presented.
All FAG- protocols and comments will be displayed in the supplement.
Time schedule/ milestones:
from July 2016: grouping of recommendations
January 2017: completion of the report
February 2017: quality control (assessment of comprehensiveness by FAG members)
