The I-CORD project is an audit of births to assess current practices for management of the third stage of labour, and for care at the time of birth for preterm infants in low and middle income countries.
Prof. Qureshi (Principal Investigator, I-CORD Audit), Prof. Rachel Musoke (Department of Paediatrics and Child Health), Dr. Alfred Osoti (Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology) and Mrs. Raheli Mukhwana (Deputy Matron, Labour Ward-KNH) attended the collaborators meeting in Kampala, Uganda. This was an audit of births to assess the timing of cord clamping, current practices for management of the third stage of labour and care at the time of birth for preterm infants in low and middle income countries. The purpose of the audit of births is to assess whether conducting a second proposed large multicentre randomised trial comparing different policies for timing of cord clamping at preterm births would be possible in low and middle income settings. The countries that participated in the audit include Kenya, Uganda, Pakistan, India and UK. The meeting brought together all the collaborators. The Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit presented the preliminary data which was to go through further analysis and prepared for publication.
