Management of labor during registrarship: A prospective study during a two-year registrarship program

Résumé

Aim Labor management is often considered to be stressful. Increases in cesarean section (CSD) and assisted vaginal (AVD) deliveries rates have been ascribed to inexperience. To address this issue, we observed the obstetric management activity of four obstetrics and gynecology registrars throughout their 2-year registrarship program. Methods We performed a prospective, observational study of urgent and semi-/nonurgent CSD and AVD in a tertiary maternity unit. The registrars' obstetric management was compared with that of a referral group. Changes over time in the registrars' practice were also monitored. Results A total of 4328 deliveries (including 670 CSD and 736 AVD) were analyzed. The registrars and the experienced obstetricians managed 2930 and 1398 deliveries, respectively, with similar neonatal outcomes. There were no intergroup differences in either total CSD percentage (455 [15.5%] and 215 [15.4%] for registrars and experienced practitioners, respectively, P = 0.90) or AVD percentage (478 [16.3%] and 258 [18.5%], respectively, P = 0.08), or according to degree of urgency. Rates did not change over the course of the registrarship program, regardless of degree of urgency. Conclusion Lower degree of experience was not associated with elevated CSD or AVD rates. Skills required to appropriately manage an obstetric ward seemed to have been acquired at the end of residency.
