Curtin University Research Study - GP Model of Care Referral Experience
This study aims to investigate the factors that influence referral to maternity models of care in Australian general practice.
In Australian general practice, GPs are required to refer antenatal clients to a respective maternity model of care. Current research focuses on the influences of maternal birthplace decision-making but has failed to account for the factors that influence GP decision-making around the antenatal referral. Our study aims to explore and describe the factors which influence GP referral to maternity models of care in Australia.
