Abstract

This article reports on a study assessing the impact of a clinical guideline for the active management of labor. Modest changes were noted in the process of care with minimal impact on outcomes. Results might have been enhanced if more systems had been in place and if provider training had involved more comprehensive discussion and feedback on each of the components.
