Project: Increasing Research Informed Policy and Practice through Social Media and Education

Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA)

The MANA Statistics Project (MANA Stats) has resulted in transformative research that has the capacity to inform consumer decision-making, midwifery care, and policy discussions. MANA Stats data demonstrates what we in the midwifery community already know: that midwifery care has long been meeting the goals of the triple aim of improved maternity care outcomes, lower costs, and improved patient experiences. MANA has developed a plan to translate research findings into easy-to-consume content including webinars, fact sheets, and social-media outreach.
