Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To develop benchmarks for wait times for obstetrics and gynaecology.

METHODS:

An expert panel reviewed the literature published from 1995 to September 30, 2007, and provided recommendations.

EVIDENCE:

The benchmarks in this document were recommended by the SOGC ad hoc Committee on Wait Times, which includes members with expertise in obstetrics, gynaecology, urogynaecology, and gynaecologic oncology. A literature review was conducted on wait times and access to care, and existing clinical practice guidelines and standards of care documents were reviewed. This policy, developed by the SOGC ad hoc Committee on Wait Times, was adopted by the SOGC Council at its meeting on November 10, 2007. The SOGC Council includes representatives from all regions of Canada, experts from all areas of practice in obstetrics and gynaecology, family physicians, nurses, midwives, program directors, and residents, as well as a public representative.

OUTCOMES:

Development through consensus of recommended wait times in obstetrics and gynaecology.
