Clients, Colleagues, or Critics? Negotiating Gaps between evidence and community standards

What does emerging science on neurobiology and epigenetics tell us about decision making in pregnancy, labour and birth? Does birth place matter? Should caesarean reduction be the goal? How long is labour? How long is human gestation? How accurate is an ultrasound date? What happens when clients want care that does not align with community standard? How do our messages about evidence and risk affect quality and safety? What do women say? What do providers believe? This session will explore new patient-centered outcomes from research on quality, safety, risk and responsibility. Together we will review and discuss emerging tools and strategies to facilitate conversations about the best available evidence and respectful maternity care.
