Abstract

The obstetrical laborist, based on the hospitalist model, can improve quality and safety of labor and delivery care. A laborist can be a physician assistant (PA), certified nurse midwife, or obstetrician/gynecologist who provides care using a scheduled shifts model. Workforce trends show a rapid increase in certified nurse midwives and PAs, which could stimulate the laborist movement and increase opportunities for PAs.
