Needs Statement

To achieve prevention and reduce rates requires partnership and coordination at many levels. MMRCs alone cannot achieve reduction, but together with perinatal quality collaboratives and the tools and technical assistance of the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) program, we can achieve culture change and improved maternal outcomes.

Implement education and maternal care practices that address systemic racism to improve outcomes. 

Target Audience

Healthcare professionals interested in successful quality improvement initiatives that could be implemented in delivery hospitals.


Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the factors that contribute to racial and ethnic disparities in maternal health
2. Understand the concepts and goals of equality and equity in health care delivery
3. List quality improvement strategies to improve maternal outcomes and eliminate disparities/inequities
