AABC Reseach Committee Chair Diana Jolles, PhD, CNM, FACNM presented an education session to midwifery service directors at the American College of Nurse-Midwives' Midwifery Works conference last week. In the session titled "Taking Midwifery to Scale in the United States: Implications for Service Directors from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Strong Start for Mothers and Newborns Initiative" Jolles focused on the impact of midwifery-led care for Medicaid beneficiaries demonstrated by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) program specifically related to improved quality, enhanced patient experience, and lower cost.  Participants engaged in the interactive session to celebrate the innovation and success across the country while thinking about cross-cutting lessons from Strong Start and how it relates to every practice.
