Abstract: Health professionals at 25 Australian and New Zealand tertiary maternity hospitals were surveyed about local implementation of a clinical practice guideline for antenatal magnesium sulphate for fetal neuroprotection. Seventy-six percent of respondents reported that their hospital is currently following a guideline; 36% confirmed that their hospital is auditing uptake. Estimates of uptake ranged from 53 to 90%. Ongoing education and support are needed to ensure that the guidelines are optimally implemented, and uptake and important health outcomes are monitored.
