The proposed survey has been designed to evaluate and assess the knowledge, attitudes and practice management patterns of obstetricians in the metropolitan Atlanta area regarding stillbirths in general, as well as in their medical practice.

Proposed Project

    Metropolitan Atlanta Stillbirth Management Survey: Knowledge, 
Attitudes and Practice Patterns from Obstetricians,--New--National 
Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD), 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The U.S. Congress House Report 108-792 (joint conference report for 
the Fiscal Year 2005 omnibus appropriations bill) provides specific 
funding to devise a comprehensive strategy for expanding existing birth 
defects surveillance systems to incorporate surveillance data on all 
intrauterine fetal deaths of 20 or more week's gestation into the 
Metropolitan Atlanta Congenital Defects Program (MACDP). Stillbirth is 
largely an understudied adverse pregnancy outcome even though it 
accounts for nearly one half of all perinatal mortality. There is 
currently no nationally accepted definition of what constitutes a 
stillbirth, and there are no universally recommended, standardized 
stillbirth evaluation protocols in use for the evaluation of fetal 
deaths. The proposed survey has been designed to evaluate and assess 
the knowledge, attitudes and practice management patterns of 
obstetricians in the metropolitan Atlanta area regarding stillbirths in 
general, as well as in their medical practice. This information will be 
used to identify prevailing deficiencies leading to incomplete and 
inaccurate reporting of data relative to stillbirths, and to develop 
targeted awareness and educational strategies for participating MACDP 
facilities. Ongoing, accurate and reliable population-based registries 
of stillbirths are essential for conducting epidemiologic studies on 
the causes of and risk factors for this pregnancy outcome. This survey 
will be mailed to randomly selected obstetricians whose practices serve 
residents of the 5 counties comprising metropolitan Atlanta. This 
survey will be conducted once and will take approximately 2-3 months to 
collect the data. NCBDDD is requesting OMB clearance for 1 (one) year. 
There is no cost to the survey respondents except for the time 
necessary to complete the survey. The total annual burden hours are 122
