Nörby, Ulrika LU ; Shemeikka, Tero and Winbladh, Birger (2019) 17th World Congress on Medical and Health Informatics, MEDINFO 2019 In Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 264. p.1743-1744
Abstract

A non-commercial knowledge base providing assessments of fetal risks of medicinal drugs is a useful tool in the everyday work of midwives. The information is freely available on the internet, and according to a questionnaire study, nearly 95% of the midwives are familiar with the database, 30% use the information weekly, and 80% express that it affects their medical decisions. A vast majority of the midwives also state that it is time-saving.
