Background: The incidence of preeclampsia, the precursor to eclampsia, varies greatly worldwide. WHO estimates the incidence of preeclampsia to be seven times higher in developing countries (2.8% of live births) than in developed countries (0.4%). Preeclampsia and eclampsia remain a major cause (31.04%) of maternal mortality in East Java. It is essential to early detect preeclampsia in order to prevent mortality. Good performance of midwives in the management of preeclampsia may reduce maternal mortality attributable to eclampsia. It is hypothesized that motivation, leadership style, working atmosphere, insentive, skill, and training, all have impact on midwives performance. This study aimed to analyze the effects of motivation and other factorson midwives performance in preeclampsia managementin Malang, East Java, using path analysis model.
