Should Women Carry Their Antenatal Records?
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1986 Mar 1; 292(6520): 603.
Eighty-eight pregnant women who were given their full medical records at a Cambridge clinic were compared to 83 patients who carried only the traditional, less detailed card. Seventy-one of those who carried their full records liked the innovation, and 83 thought there were advantages. Forty-four women found it difficult to carry the records, which were too large for easy transport. Only three women worried that the notes would contain something they would not want to know, although 20 in both the experimental and control groups found the notes difficult to understand or worrisome.
