Many thanks to Mary Hyde at ACOG, who gave me all kinds of tremendous information to pass along to my boss. And... for this wonderful exercise, which proved my point to the same boss, who never quite understood before, that it just may take several hours or even all day to find information on one literature search request.

Have a nice weekend!

Thanks again-

My direct supervisor - who is on our Admin team - has asked for national standards on the minimum number of births a provider must perform annually to maintain competency certification. Of course, she needs this info today...

I have tried the ACOG site and the AMA and the CDC. In ACOG I can't get to anything because I am not a member and it's all restricted.

Can any of you help point me in the right direction? Please reply directly to me - I get the digest.
