The American College of Nurse-Midwives is in its fourth year of a multi-state, multi-hospital initiative aimed at reducing primary cesarean births in low risk women through the support of physiologic labor and birth. The collaborative is called Reducing Primary Cesareans, or “RPC.” Twenty five hospitals from across the U.S. have participated in the collaborative during 2016, 2017 and 2018 and have already achieved reductions in their NTSV rates of up to 18%.
Hospitals selected to participate in the learning collaborative work with a multi-disciplinary team of RPC quality improvement experts to identify areas of improvement and track process and outcome measures. Participants also have access to online materials and tools, as well as a peer sharing site. In addition, they attend monthly webinars and coaching sessions.

The project is supported by a combination of grant funds and fees from participating hospitals, and the RPC is staffed by a part-time Project Director and a team of volunteer faculty. We are seeking a part-time, flexible and curious person to join our team and support the project for the rest of
2019. This position is supported by grant funds.
