The Retro-transfer Implementation Work Group (RTIWG) made recommendations that support timely and efficient retro-transfers which in turn allow for timely admissions and transfers of high risk women and neonates. This report introduces standardized communication, education and documentation tools that will streamline the system. Recommended tools include the new Provincial Maternal Transport Record and Provincial Neonatal Retro-transfer Record. These forms and resources are designed to support teams as they implement a process to facilitate neonatal retro-transfers in a consistent and timely manner, to educate and communicate with providers, patients and families, and to ensure that aspects of care are not delayed or missed because of a transfer to another centre.
