AJP Rep. 2017 Oct;7(4):e201-e204 Authors: Johnston RC, Haeri S, Hale RT, Lindsley W, McCormick A, Su E Abstract Objective  The objective of this study was to estimate the impact of multidisciplinary (Multi-D) perinatal care conference (PCC) implementation in the private practice setting. Methods  After the initial 12-month period following implementation of the monthly PCC by private maternal-fetal medicine and neonatology practitioners, conference attendees were asked to completed a modified version of the Attitudes Toward Health Care Teams Scale, involving 19 questions assessing their attitudes and opinions toward Multi-D team care on a five-point Likert's scale. Results  Of the 51 average attendees to the PCC, 82.3% completed the survey. A majority of respondents agreed that Multi-D team care resulted in improved care for patients and family, was not overly complex to coordinate, and resulted in significant job satisfaction and improved medical knowledge. Conclusion  Multi-D care is an effective approach to the complicated needs of maternal-fetal medicine patients which may lead to improved patient and family outcomes, high provider satisfaction, and can easily be implemented and utilized within a private practice or community hospital setting.
