Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
Some models of care include a minimum number of scheduled or planned visits to a medical practitioner for all women. These are planned as part of the model of care and not visits to a doctor as required for some women. Although the number of visits for individual women may vary depending on need, some models will have a minimum number of visits for all women (even 1 visit).
CODE 1 Yes
This code is used if a model of maternity care includes a schedule of planned visits to a medical practitioner. The number of visits with a medical practitioner may vary depending on the woman’s individual needs, however there is a minimum schedule of planned visits for all women intended within the model of care. These must be planned as part of the model of care and not referrals to a doctor as required for some women.
CODE 2 No
This code is used if a model of maternity care does not include a minimum number of planned visits to a medical practitioner. Women may still be referred to a doctor if needed but there is no minimum schedule of visits to a medical practitioner for all women included in the model of care.
