As a labor and delivery nurse, you can provide exceptional care to laboring women by incorporating current evidence into your practice. During this webinar, we will cover the AWHONN Nursing Care and Management of the Second Stage of Labor Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guideline (EBG; 3rd ed.). Included are topics of immediate vs. delayed pushing; special considerations for those in labor with obesity, pelvic organ prolapse, and labor dystocia; positioning; pushing techniques; maternal and fetal safety; uterine activity; COVID-19 concerns; evaluation of labor care.
At the conclusion of the activity, you will be able to:
- Appraise the evidence about nursing management of second stage labor.
- Formulate applications for evidence-based clinical practice guidelines on Nursing Care and the Management of Second Stage Labor to clinical practice.
