Lamaze International is delighted to be offering a continuing education opportunity for all interested professionals. "Six is the New Four: A Review of the Safe Prevention of the Primary Cesarean Delivery Consensus Report" is being facilitated by Richard Waldman, M.D. and Peggy DeZinno, BSN, RN, LCCE from OB-Consult on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 at 4 PM EDT.
A few weeks ago, Science & Sensibility's Judith Lothian highlighted and reviewed the just released joint ACOG/SMFM report "Safe Prevention of the Primary Cesarean Delivery" and many agreed it was a game changer. Many of the recommendations listed in the report appeared to be shifting away from current, but outdated practices and encouraging more evidence based care that promotes patience, expectant management and acknowledges that protocols need to be changed if there is to be a reduction in cesareans, particularly that primary (first) cesarean.
In this upcoming webinar, Dr. Richard Waldman and Peggy DeZinno will discuss the gap between current practice and the opinion paper's recommendations. What will it take to get us there? What needs to change and where are the challenges?
Dr. Waldman is the former president of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a keynote speaker at the 2013 Lamaze International Annual Conference that was held in New Orleans, LA. You can read an interview I did with Dr. Waldman last summer and also read his article, "Birth as the Ultimate Collaboration" that he wrote for Science & Sensibility in advance of his keynote presentation.
