Evidence-based Clinical Care: Cesarean Section and Vaginal Delivery

December 8, 2017

This course will address the implementation of Baptist Health standardization efforts for vaginal delivery and Cesarean section. Obstetricians and gynecologists are essential partners in implementing these systemic changes. Processes addressed include the postpartum discharge process, primary elective Cesarean section, Bishop score screen, labor management protocols and new standardized macrosomia criteria. 


Target Audience

Obstetricians, Gynecologists, Pediatricians, Neonatologists, Laborists and Physician Assistants.

Learning Objectives

  • Implement systemwide standardization efforts to improve the postpartum discharge process and reduce overall vaginal delivery length of stay while maintaining optimal patient outcomes. 
  • Educate patients on the risks and benefits of primary elective Cesarean section vs. vaginal delivery and consistently complete the necessary documentation in Baptist Health's electronic medical records. 
  • Adhere to the Bishop score screening tool for elective induction in order to schedule patients at Baptist Health facilities.
  • Implement consistent labor management protocols to reduce adverse events and the likelihood of Cesarean sections.
