Phase Three of the project is piloting the guidelines, and Phase Four is ascertaining how women feel about use of the guidelines.The framework of nine key points is for use by any health and social care professional, and is being piloted in one health and social services board area in Northern Ireland. It is envisaged that the impact of the framework will becomplemented by local policy, and education and training on holistic approaches for professionals.
