Quality Patient Care in Labor and Delivery: A Call to Action

The nation’s leading health care organizations in the area of maternal and infant health, including ACOG, has developed Quality Patient Care in Labor and Delivery: A Call to Action. The document provides specific recommendations for improving quality of care to the pregnant patient and her child. While the Call to Action is broad in scope, it forms the foundation for these organizations and their members to work together to improve maternal and infant outcomes through multidisciplinary collaboration and other methodologies.
