Subject: Re: Midwifery Ethnographic Research
We used an ethnographic approach in our research to explore the management of acute illness in both maternity and medicine - this included how staff interpret and respond to signs of clinical deterioration and the intended and unintended consequences of safety tools .
We have published the following from the maternity data;
Mackintosh,N. Watson,K. Rance,S. Sandall,J. (2013) online first, The value of a Modified Early Obstetric Warning System (MEOWS) in managing maternal complications in the peripartum period: an ethnographic study, BMJ Quality and Safety, 18/7/13
My PhD focused on 'rescue work' within medical settings but may still be of interest to you: Mackintosh, N. (2012). Enacting patient safety on the frontline: an ethnographic study of rescue work with acutely ill patients. King's College London: PhD thesis.
All the best,
