High Impact Practices to Address Cardiac Conditions and Improve Maternal Health Outcomes Webinar
Cardiac conditions are the leading cause of maternal mortality and morbidity in the first year postpartum, particularly among non-Hispanic Black and Hispanic people. In this webinar, learn about evidence-based practices (called High Impact Practice Sets or HIPS) for addressing cardiac conditions in a sexual and reproductive health outpatient setting.
This webinar is the second in a series of five on the new HIPS, which were adapted from Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) Patient Safety Bundles by the RHNTC in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Speakers will cover the impact of cardiac conditions on maternal health, including on racial disparities in maternal morbidity and mortality; the importance of addressing cardiac conditions in the reproductive health setting; HIPS for addressing cardiac conditions; and new RHNTC resources to help address cardiac conditions.
