dc.description.abstract Background The way in which women and their babies transition from maternity services to the care of child and family health nurses differs across Australia. The aim of the study was to understand the transition of care from one service to another and how to promote collaboration in the first few weeks after the birth. Method A descriptive study was undertaken. All midwifery, child and family health and Families NSW managers in NSW were invited to participate by completing a questionnaire. Results There was a wide range of transition of care models. These varied by setting, geography, context and history. Three main models emerged from the analysis. These were as follows: 1. Structured, non-verbal communication system that relied on paper-based or computerised systems. This included either centralised referral or centre-based referral processes. 2. Liaison person model which was similar to purposeful contact, but with everything vested in one clinician who is responsible for the coordination and organisation. 3. Purposeful contact model which was mostly for identified at-risk women and included continuity of care with formal networks and face to face contact. en_US
