The pharmacological methods include basic analgesics like co-codamol, entonox, epidural and spinal and combined spinal-epidural. The non-pharmacological methods are birthing pools and self help methods like relaxation techniques, deep breathing, and massage (Zaiti, Clark, & Ghani, 2011). The research compared the awareness of these methods by the women and the responsibility of the midwives towards these methods on the expectant mothers.
The audit will assist in elevating the practice or implementing new clinical practices if the existing ones do not satisfy the patients. The data encompassed the patient’s awareness of the dissimilar forms of labor analgesia, the category of analgesia used by patients and the derivatives of information about labor analgesia.
The survey conducted looked at the satisfaction of the patients about labor analgesia and the involvement of the midwives in teaching about the practice. Reports from the survey revealed the degree of contentment of the service by the patients. It also revealed that the midwives played a vital role in creating awareness of the service, which most patients never knew.
The research analyzed the satisfaction of patients since the implementation of labor analgesia. From the research, most patients fancy the “pharmacological” methods, upon contrast to the “non-pharmacological” (Zaiti, Clark, & Ghani, 2011). The midwives played the biggest role for the success of analgesia process in creating awareness while some patients never accessed the information. This brought the need for creating more awareness so that the service becomes accessible.
The method used during the research was clinical audits. The reliability of clinical audits is that they indicate the relationship between what is practiced and what ought to be done (Zaiti, Clark & Ghani, 2011). The patient survey looked at

The process of shared governance is to make decisions which affect the nursing practice as well as that of the patient care. The process of shared governance is also working with other disciplines for the welfare of the patient as well as of improving the nursing practice.
Therefore, there is a perceived need to measure quality of care. There is general consensus as to the assessment of quality of healthcare based on three criteria. These are structure indicating the characteristics of the provider, process indicating various parameters of care encounters between the provider and the patient, and outcomes of care.
PCA has contributed to providing patients with better postoperative pain relief. Recently, PCA has become one of the most widely used techniques for pain relief after major surgery.
PCA is a pain-control system where a patient can treat patient's own pain rather than wait for a nurse to give more medication (Rapp SE, Ready LB, Greer BE.
