Re-orientation of the Austrian parent-child preventive care programme - Part IX: Evidence-based screening guidelines for pregnant women and children (0 6 yrs.)
Duration: May 2012 - March 2013
Publication: HTA-Project report No. 62: http://eprints.hta.lbg.ac.at/996/
During the past two years the LBI-HTA conducted eight reports (Part I – VIII) with different thematic foci in the context of parent-child preventive care programmes. Part I and IV dealt with the identification of various health risk profiles and stress factors that may affect expectant mothers, parents and children (0 – 6 yrs.). Part II and VI analysed international (European) ante- and postnatal screening programmes. Part III and VIII focused on economic and financial aspects related to preventive care programmes for pregnant women, parents and children. Part VII addressed the question of electronic options in the realisation and implementation of parent-child preventive care programmes. Against this backdrop, the current project attempts to provide a decision support for a realigned Austrian parent-child preventive care programme involving screening recommendations based on evidence-based guidelines.
Part IX pursues the aim of identifying evidence-based antenatal, perinatal and postnatal screening guidelines.
- Which antenatal, perinatal and postnatal screening recommendations can be identified in evidence-based guidelines?
1. Systematic and unsystematic literature search for evidence-based guidelines (e.g. via ‘GIN database’ and ‘National Guideline Clearinghouse’);
2. Qualitative analysis of guideline recommendations according to major health and stress factors for pregnant women and children (outlined in project reports I and IV)
Time schedule / milestones:
May – June 2012: Outline of the final project protocol; literature search
July – December 2012: Inclusion / exclusion of guidelines and guideline analysis; list of recommended evidence-based pre-, peri- and postnatal screenings (based on guidelines); expert contacts
January – March 2013: internal and external review (quality assurance)
