COVID-19 Message to our Members and Partners:
Thank you to all the medical professionals who continue to work the front lines in caring for people during this pandemic! An interrupted time series analysis of The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on perinatal care and outcomes has recently been published in the journal, Birth using data from OB COAP. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about this study. We will post additional related publications as they become available.
The healthcare landscape as it relates to COVID-19 is constantly evolving. Research and recommendations are being updated frequently, and communicating this information to patients is challenging to say the least. OB COAP held an educational webinar on 9/17/21 – COVID-19 and Pregnancy: Understanding Current Evidence and Communicating with Patients. We encourage you to view the recording, using the access passcode: OBCOAP@2021webinar.
