Jan. 14, 2019: Perinatal Quality Collaborative Kicks off 2nd Year

Join the New Jersey Perinatal Quality Collaborative (NJPQC) Jan. 14 as it kicks off its second year during a webinar at 10 a.m.

The New Jersey Perinatal Quality Collaborative is a statewide partnership of committed stakeholders working together to improve the quality and safety of care provided to New Jersey’s mothers and babies. The work is funded in thanks to a grant of up to $1 million over the course of five years from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NJPQC is one of 13 state organizations awarded funding from the CDC to improve the quality of perinatal care, and is led by New Jersey Hospital’s Health Research and Education Trust.                                                                      

This webinar will cover the Jan. 23 observance of Maternal Health Awareness Day, identify the elements of the Stop! Look! Listen! Consumer Campaign, which was developed to empower pregnant moms and their families, and describe the NJPQC’s plan for year two, including new timelines and expectations for priority initiatives: reducing Cesarean-sections for low-risk, first time mothers and improving care for hypertension (preeclampsia) and maternal hemorrhaging.

Continuing education credits will be provided.
