Event Details

The high rate of maternal mortality in the United States continues to make headlines and pose questions about the quality of care provided to women and families. Differences between the mortality rates of women in various ethnic groups raise questions about healthcare disparities within the system. Maternal mortality reviews serve as a means of identifying underlying causes of maternal death and disparity to inform prevention strategies. Hear about the drivers of maternal mortality and how to engage in the national effort to improve maternal mortality. The maternal mortality review process will be discussed, including operationalizing a maternal mortality review committee, identifying and abstracting maternal mortality cases, and engaging with the public about maternal mortality from the perspective of a provider. Understand how to translate maternal mortality data into solutions through clinical and public health activities.
