The Queensland Perinatal Data Collection (QPDC) Mother Data Supply Requirement (DSR) is a description of the minimum requirements for supply of mother details records of Queensland births to the QPDC for the 2020-2021 reporting period.

The QPDC Mother DSR includes only data elements required for provision of mother details records for Queensland Births and should be used in conjunction with the QPDC Baby DSR when supplying to the QPDC.
Short Name
QPDC Mother DSR 2020-21
Collection and Usage Attributes
The aims of the Queensland Perinatal Data Collection are to monitor patterns of obstetric and neonatal practice in the State and to provide statistical information on specific topics within these fields to assist with the planning of Department of Health services. It is also intended to be a basic source of information for research in obstetric and neonatal care and to be used in the education of students of midwifery and medicine.
Mother detail records are required for all births occurring in Queensland, delivered within a public or private hospital, or by a private midwifery or medical practitioner. The scope includes all livebirths, and stillbirths of at least 20 weeks gestation and/or at least 400 grams in weight.

Statistical Unit
Data Submission Guidelines
Information relating to neonatal morbidity is collected up until the baby is discharged from the birth admission or up until the baby reaches 28 days of age. These forms or extract should be forwarded to the Statistical Collections and Integration Unit within 35 days of the birth of a baby.
Data Submission Methods
Paper MR63D forms are completed by a small number of hospitals and private midwifery practitioners and submitted to the QPDC in this format. The form is designed to be an integral part of the obstetric record, both to reduce duplication of recording and to ensure optimum accuracy of data. 

Perinatal Online (PNO) is a web based application, developed by Statistical Collections and Integration Unit (SCIU), which enables facilities to enter perinatal data for both the mother and the baby(s) and perform an electronic extract to SCIU to report QPDC data. Alternatively, electronic file submissions may be transmitted following the QPDC electronic file format.
Data Submission Dates
Within 35 days of the birth of the baby.
