Maternal Mortality’s National Focus: Advancing Aims Under New Accountability

Acute Care
Maternal Mortality

About This Webinar

Every year in the U.S., 700 to 900 women die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes, with an additional 65,000 nearly dying. The quality of maternal care is especially concerning for Black women in the U.S., as racial and ethnic disparities in pregnancy-related deaths have persisted over time.

Due to the lack of progress from our nation’s hospitals and health systems, the ongoing maternal mortality crisis is garnering more national support than ever before. Healthcare leaders are faced with a heightened level of accountability as new standards and requirements are steadily released in an effort to rapidly and drastically affect mothers’ and babies’ care.

This webinar will help you better understand how to address the national focus on maternal and perinatal safety at a local level.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Gain a clear summary of the many national organizations and campaigns to improve maternal care (such as The Department of Health and Human Services, CDC, The Joint Commission) and how they differ.
  • Identify ways to assess what your organization is missing from a maternal and perinatal safety improvement action plan.
  • Learn how other hospitals and health systems have been successful in significantly improving maternal and perinatal safety while also reducing costs and meeting regulatory requirements.
