Implemented Health Facility
Health facility that has piloted the "Team Birth Project"
Behavioral: Exposed study site
The study sites will pilot the Team Birth Project designed to improve team communication (between providers, as well as providers and patients). The project includes three key implementation steps that involve: preparing local sites for the implementation of the project; training and coaching on the use of the tools; and sustainment through peer coaching and data feedback. A mixed methods approach will be used to assess acceptability and feasibility, including: (1) clinician surveys and interviews, (2) implementation team focus groups, and (3) patient surveys.
- Acceptability to clinicians [ Time Frame: The window begins on the 180th day to the 270th day from the start date at each site (180 days to 270 days). If clinicians complete more than one survey in the window, we will use the first one. ]At the project midline, percent of clinicians (physicians, midwives, and nurses) who would definitely or probably recommend the Team Birth project tools for use in other labor and delivery units.
- Acceptability to patients [ Time Frame: The window begins on the 180th day to the 270th day from the start date at each site (180 days to 270 days). ]At the project midline, percent of patients who definitely or somewhat had the role they wanted in making decisions about their labor, among patients who wanted to make collaborative decisions with clinicians.
