Reducing Maternal Mortality

Address Variation in Care

Addressing clinical practice variation to improve patient safety and develop a culture of high reliability for our nation’s mothers and their babies.

Solutions to Reduce Maternal Mortality and Morbidity

Currently, with the U.S. ranking 47th out of 183 countries in maternal mortality, the stakes are high, and the pressure is intense. By reducing care variation in the highest risk areas, hospitals and providers can begin to change the narrative on maternal mortality. In addition to improving patient safety, creating a culture of high reliability empowers nurses and doctors to provide care as a true team.

Read the White Paper

“Quality improvement work cannot successfully be led by only nursing. Care is given by a team and therefore process improvement must be led by the same team (in the case of labor and delivery), including physicians, nurses, midwives, anesthesiologists, etc.”
