Abstract

To support the implementation of the RCM guidance for Induction of Labour (IoL), we have developed a practical implementation guide. This was informed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance ‘Practical steps to improving the quality of care and services using NICE guidance’1 . The RCM guidance for Induction of Labour is based on review level evidence and designed to support the work of midwives in the provision of high quality care. It should be viewed as complementing other high quality sources of evidence-based information produced by organisations such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network and local guidance.
