Brenden Malende, Prof J Moodley

Abstract


: This will be a retrospective analysis of inductions of labour carried out over a 3 years period from July 2007 to July 2010. It will determine the success rate of all women who underwent induction of labour. Audit has important consequences for medical practice from the information that is obtained.  The result of the analysis may indicate that the current methods are not working, thus better methods need to be developed or current methods modified to improve care to women undergoing induction of labour.
