More than ever, those working in obstetrics must stay current on the latest knowledge, attitudes, and expertise, and are subject to rigorous scrutiny of their clinical practice. These efforts are expected to gain momentum and remain a predominant theme in the nation's health care over the next decade.

This primer is designed to provide those in clinical practice with the background and vocabulary they will need to play a part in this important work.
