Please join us for the last Texas Department of State Health Services Grand Rounds presentation of the fall semester, Preventing the First Cesarean Delivery: Practical Application of the Evidence, on Wednesday, November 12, from 11:00-12:30 p.m. in the K-100 Lecture Hall in Austin by the Lobby (see Central Campus-Austin map) and via live webinar.

Preventing csectionDuring the session, participants will learn about trends in cesarean delivery in Texas and the U.S. and the short and long-term consequences of cesarean delivery for mother and infant. Through this examination, the participant will learn about the most common precursors to cesarean delivery, cases when cesarean delivery is clinically indicated, and situations in which the use of oxytocin protocols may avert progression to delivery by cesarean section. Participants will have an opportunity to examine promising models for care bundling being promoted in other states and considered in Texas. Presented by Christina Davidson, MD, Professor, Baylor College of Medicine and Chief of Service, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ben Taub Hospital.
