Implementation of Preterm Labor Assessment Toolkit, a System-wide Initiative to Improve Preterm Labor Outcomes
Host: Renée Simone Yolanda Allen, MD, MHSc., FACOG
Guest: Lashea Wattie RNC C-EFM, MSN BSN M. Ed
Preterm birth is a serious problem within the United States, with approximately 12% of all live infant births occurring before term, or 37 weeks’ gestation. Given that preterm births are associated with neonatal and infant mortality, as well as several other long-term complications, it is clear that preterm birth poses a significant healthcare burden. In this special edition of Advances in Women’s Health, host, Dr. Renee Allen interviews Lashea Wattie, a nurse at Wellstar Kennestone Regional Medical Center in Marietta, Georgia, to talk about implementing a system-wide initiative to improve preterm labor outcomes and how her own medical center has adopted and uses the PLAT system to diagnose preterm labor.
