Collaboration & Standardization to Improve Perinatal Outcomes: How midwives can lead the way

During the past decade, implementation of standardized protocols has significantly reduced adverse perinatal outcomes. Elimination of elective delivery before 39 weeks is the endpoint that has received greatest attention in hospital-based, regional and statewide systems-change projects. Many states have formed “Perinatal Collaboratives” with goals to improve outcomes – often achieved through clinician adoption & adherence to standardized protocols.
