Racine published in Wisconsin Medical Journal

A study by maternal-fetal medicine fellow and soon-to-be member of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine faculty Jenna Racine, MD, was published in the Wisconsin Medical Journal. “Barriers to Self-Disclosing Level of Maternal Care: What Are Wisconsin Hospitals Worried About? is eligible for continuing education credit.

In the study, Racine and co-authors (including UW Ob-Gyn’s Katie Gillespie, DNP, Cynthie Wautlet, MD, and Katie Antony, MD) anonymously surveyed all birthing centers in Wisconsin to better understand perceived barriers to completing self-assessments and disclosing their level of maternal care:

“Birthing centers in Wisconsin need further guidance on how to complete a self-assessment of their LOMC. In order to increase self-disclosure of LOMC, statewide perinatal organizations will need to continue to emphasize the benefits of releasing this information. Organizations should also provide additional support to level 1 and 2 birthing centers and improve maternal and neonatal care overall.”
