Abstract: Objectives:The aim of this project was to develop and implement strategies to promote standardization and formal documentation of increased bleeding within the first 24 h after birth, in compliance with best practice.Introduction:Official data from Brazil shows a maternal mortality rate of around 52 to 75 deaths per 100,000 live births, 8% of which are caused by hemorrhage. Early diagnosis is promoted through standardization and formal documentation of the first signs of hemorrhage.Methods:The current implementation project used the Joanna Briggs Institute Practical Application of Clinical Evidence System, a baseline audit was conducted on a sample size of 108 patients and 67 nursing staff. Based on the results of the baseline audit, strategies to address non-compliance were developed and implemented. A follow-up audit was conducted on a sample size of 110 patients and 68 nursing staff, using the same audit criteria.Results:The baseline audit showed poor compliance with evidence-based best practice in every criterion. The implemented protocol for postpartum hemorrhage was well received by the nursing staff, promoting early diagnosis of increased bleeding within 24 h after birth and providing support for further medical treatment. There were significant improvements in every best practice criterion in the follow-up audit.Conclusion:The current implementation project managed to improve the nursing staff professional practice, reducing the absence of records while promoting greater awareness of the first signs of primary postpartum hemorrhage. © 2019 THE JOANNA BRIGGS INSTITUTE.
