Successful Models of Collaborative Practice in Maternity Care: ACNM joins ACOG on 2011 Issue of the Year

Last winter, ACNM and ACOG put out a call to members, asking for papers describing their collaborative practices. This landmark project, the "2011 Issue of the Year: Successful Models of Collaborative Practice in Maternity Care," generated a great deal of excitement and interest, and a total of 60 manuscripts were received. After a lengthy review process involving a team of ACNM and ACOG leaders, 4 winners, 4 honorable mentions, and 9 finalists were selected. Winners were announced in May at the 2011 ACOG Annual Clinical Meeting in Washington, DC, and a number of the manuscripts are being considered for publication in a variety of peer-reviewed journals. Below, a list of the winning papers and their authors, along with the honorable mentions and finalists.
