TOLAC SURVEY by the University of Illinois, Chicago College of Nursing

Dear CNM/CM:

Thank you for participating in this survey, "Use of TOLAC Prediction Calculators Among Midwives and Collaborators."

Calculators predicting trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC) success have become widely used as a counseling aid for women with a history of cesarean. Anecdotally, some providers feel that TOLAC should be limited to women with "good" chances of success. However, there is little documentation in the literature of how calculators are ACTUALLY USED BY PROVIDERS in counseling women.

This survey is intended to document how TOLAC calculators are used to counsel women, and to encourage or restrict options for women with a history of cesarean.

Your participation is voluntary. Names and email addresses will not be collected. Confidentiality will be maintained to the degree permitted by the technology. Your risks are similar to everyday use of the internet. It should take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time.
