Survey for Patients/Consumers on Overtreatment
Hope you all are enjoying the start of summer!
First of all, we at CfM apologize that our Grassroots News Messages have been so sparse lately. Much has been going on in all of our lives, and unfortunately our news messages have taken a back seat. In the coming months, we promise to refocus our energy and use this network to spread the news about maternity care. If you have anything that you are interested in sharing, we encourage you to contact us at info@cfmidwifery.
Below is information regarding a survey from TreatmentTrap.
Please read the information below and participate in the Survey!

New Survey Launched to Query Patients/Consumers on OvertreatmentA new survey is being launched to enable patients to share their experience of overtreatment, an emerging quality and patient safety issue in health care today.
The survey is a partnership between TreatmentTrap.
The survey can be found by going to: www.treatmenttrap.
The "Share Your Story" survey asks two questions: "Have you had medical care you thought was unnecessary?" and "Have you declined medical care you thought was unnecessary and obtained a medically appropriate alternative?"
The survey prompts respondents to share experiences of overuse including those identified as overused by the National Quality Forum's National Priorities Partnership. These procedures include: spine surgery, heart bypass surgery, hysterectomy and prostatectomy.
