The Collaborating in Pregnancy and Early Years (COPE) Project

Hello and welcome!

Welcome to the Collaborating in Pregnancy and Early years (COPE) website. We are a group of researchers from City, University of London, who are researching how healthcare professionals can be supported and encouraged to work in partnership when delivering maternity and child services.

The COPE Project aims to identify how best to support health care professionals in working in partnership to support maternal and child health. It is a programme of work with three streams; healthcare professionals, women and their families and healthcare professional education.  To date, we have completed interviews with midwives and health visitors and evaluated a workshop that targeted partnership working in healthcare professionals.  We have also conducted two studies with mothers about their experiences of continuity of care from pregnancy to postpartum.  Regarding education, we have interviewed students and mentors about their experiences of having student midwives have a placement with the health visiting service.  More 
information about our publications can be found here.
Who is this website for?
This website is for those who share the same interest in collaboration between healthcare professionals during and after pregnancy.  It is also for those who are interested in finding out more information about the COPE Project, or who may want to participate in any of our ongoing research studies.  We also aim to use this website to keep you up-to-date with the latest news and events relating to the COPE Project and Team COPE.
