Abstract [en]
Current statistics show that the institutional maternal mortality rate in Angola is among the highest in the world. It was decided in 1990 to introduce a model of the WHO partograph, adapted to Angolan reality, as one instrument to improve obstetric care and reduce maternal mortality. The actual study is based upon the use of this partograph by mainly non-professionally trained midwives working in a perpheral maternity centre in the Province of Luanda. Evaluation done by CAOL (Coordenation of Obstetric Care in Luanda) of the partograph, revealed failures in understanding and usage of it, wich led to further training of the midwives in this unit. The aim of the study was to examine the impact of the intervention. The quasi-experimental study and the non-equivalent control group design, the one group, pre and post control, (Sample I and Sample II, the partograph) was selected. The correct number of partographs in Sample II was higher than in Sample I and general improvements were found in seven of ten variables when examined seperatly, indicating that the intervention had impact on the use of the partograph.
