TODAY! Understanding How Risk Factors Impact Outcomes

Free webinar for practitioners

Learn about how your practice can apply recent research on how risk factors impact outcomes in the community setting in a new MANA webinar. This webinar, led by co-author Melissa Cheyney PhD, CPM, LDM, will update you on the findings of the recently released article in the journal Birth: Issues in Perinatal Care, entitled Perspectives on risk: Assessment of risk profiles and outcomes among women planning community birth in the United States. (Learn more about this research here.)

This webinar is open to providers practicing in the community setting. It is a part of a series designed to brief practitioners and consumers on how to apply the findings of recent research to daily practice and decisions about place of birth. Watch and the MANA Facebook page for details of the consumer-oriented webinar.

Registration still available here.
