Midwives have traditionally shared information and collaborated to improve clinical practice. Shared discussion serves as a first look at new practices, products, and approaches to care. Depending on the group consensus, research may be proposed, various applications based on site of practice may be identified, and the value to care of women reviewed. The model of a midwife roundtable is not formal research but builds on the traditional midwifery approach to dissemination of information and serves as a platform to identify research opportunities.
