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

systems-change projects. Many states have formed “Perinatal Collaboratives”
with goals to improve outcomes – often achieved through clinician adoption
& adherence to standardized protocols.
