Abstract / Bemerkung
INTRODUCTION: Every discipline has a dichotomous objective by which it recognizes whether its work has been successful (Vogd, 2011). For midwifery care, no objective has been set in this way so far. This also has implications for measuring quality, because quality of care is only measurable if objectives have been identified. This paper aims to contribute to theory formation in midwifery science by analysing existing concepts and theories and preferences of women to midwifery care to answer the question of the dichotomous objective of midwifery.; METHOD AND FINDINGS: The method of theory synthesis (Walker and Avant, 2011) was used to analyse existing theories and concepts of midwifery care and literature-based preferences of women to midwifery care and synthesize them with regard to the objectives of midwifery care. The synthesis took place in the form of a means-end chain to extract the dichotomous target of midwifery care. In this way, the objectives of midwifery could be compared and linked from both the scientific and from women's perspective. The resulting means-end chain model of the process of midwifery describes the aims and objectives of midwifery from the point of view of women on three levels.; DISCUSSION: The hierarchical model of the process of midwifery presented here is a first attempt to illustrate the aims and objectives of midwifery practice in a means-end chain model in order to facilitate discussion on the topic and to make the quality of midwifery care measurable. Measurement is a first step towards improving quality of midwifery care and thereby improving women's reproductive capabilities. Copyright © 2020. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
