NPM: 2: Low-Risk Cesarean Deliveries
Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): HOSPITAL, Elective Induction Policy, Guideline Change and Implementation, Policy/Guideline (Hospital)

Intervention Results:

At the intervention hospital, 30.3% (964/3181) of women underwent CD in 2009–2010, compared with 26.4% (803/3045) in 2012–2013 (difference −3.9%, P<0.001). By contrast, no significant difference was recorded in control hospitals (28.1% [23 694/84 361] vs 28.2% [23 683/83 895]; difference 0.1%, P=0.5157).

NPM: 2: Low-Risk Cesarean Deliveries
Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): HOSPITAL, Peer-Review of Provider Decisions, Elective Induction Policy, Guideline Change and Implementation

Intervention Results:

The overall CS rate was 29 %, mainly related to group 5 (multiparous with previous CS) and group 2 (nulliparous women induced or who had CS before labor). The study also shows that induction of labor on maternal request in nulliparous at term (group 2a) increased significantly the risk of CS compared to induction of labor for medical reason (p<0.001).
