This reference provides guidelines for midwives in caring for women during pregnancy and the life cycle, with current practices that are evidence-based, traditional, and empiric and drawn from the Centers for Disease Control, American College of Nurse-Midwives, and many others. Tharpe and Farley (Midwifery Institute, Philadelphia U.) take into account cultural awareness, risk management, consultations and referrals, and the importance of documentation in their discussion of clinical conditions that affect pregnant women or those with reproductive problems, and occur during or after labor and birth, as well as well-woman visits and primary care issues. Each condition addresses key clinical information, history, physical examination, clinical impression, testing, and treatment and support aspects. This edition has been revised and updated to include ICD-9 code groups by diagnosis and new sections on ethics, litigation, and adverse outcomes.
