Summary note:
"Clinical Practice Guidelines for Midwifery & Women's Health is an up-to-date, quick reference guide to midwifery and the care of women. This text presents a compilation of current practices that include evidence-based, traditional and empiric care from a wide variety of sources, and is extremely useful for meeting American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) peer review criteria and recommendations." "The Third Edition has been completely revised and updated and now includes ICD-9 code groups by diagnosis as well as a new section on ethics and one on litigation and adverse outcomes. Designed with an emphasis on education and support, each guideline reflects current practice, and provides support and guidance for day-to-day clinical practice with diverse populations. The guidelines may also be customized further with dated and initialed written additions, deletions or use of a highlighter to reflect your individual practice."--BOOK JACKET.
