Project description

B.OSS has initiated since 2012 the registration of severe obstetric complications in Belgium, supported by the ‘College of Mother and Newborn’, based on the methodology of UKOSS.

B.OSS enables to improve our knowledge on incidence, management and outcome of rare obstetric complications in Belgium, to compare the maternal healthcare with surrounding countries and to formulate guidelines.
