Abstract:   (818 Views)
Background: A successful delivery depends on the coordinated work of all medical personnel. Compliance with the basic principles of teamwork is the key to the quality of medical care. The purpose of this study was to investigate the issues of teamwork of healthcare professionals during delivery.
   Methods: This descriptive study was conducted in 2019 in Almaty, Republic of Kazakhstan. A total of 40 doctors and 40 midwives who provide inpatient care for women during childbirth took part in the study. Based on the questionnaire, the authors conducted a standardized survey. The tools for statistical processing of the obtained data were Microsoft Excel and Software IBM SPSS Statistics 25.0. The authors used the Student's t-test to calculate the significance of differences.
   Results: The results of the study showed that 85% of the respondents believed that the size of the team did not require changes. Approximately 2/3 of the respondents evaluated the efficacy of delivery techniques used by the team as “medium” and “low”. Compliance with the general approach based on mutually agreed principles was partial. The opinions of the doctors and midwives differed significantly regarding fair distribution of responsibilities in the team and the level of trust in the team.
   Conclusion: As a result of the study, it was concluded that there is an urgent need to introduce modern team-building technologies into the daily practice of healthcare professionals of the obstetrician-gynecological service.
